An error log is a collection of information which contains all the errors and warnings experienced by the guests on your sites. Numerous examples of what you could find in such a log are: broken links that lead to non-existing files, pages that were not processed properly by the hosting server, which triggered an error/warning message for the website visitor, and attempts from unauthorized IP addresses to reach the site or its administration area. Every single entry within the error log contains the exact time and date the event took place, the visitor’s IP, the particular directory path in the hosting account to the website or file which had an issue and the reason for the error to appear to begin with. Reviewing an error log will allow you to identify and resolve problems on your website, which could improve the functionality of the website and the users’ experience.
Error Log Viewer in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, offered with our shared hosting accounts, will make it easy to generate and view an error log for any site that you have within your account. As you log in, you will need to navigate to the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the site that you want to keep track of. The button is available for every single domain name that you have hosted and every subdomain you have created, so you can get an in depth log for every single one of them individually, so as to be able to examine the websites for problems simplier and easier. A second click on the same exact button will deactivate the feature, but you'll still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, that is available within the very same section. When required, you can use software on your computer to process the raw web server data for statistical purposes.
Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Servers
The error log generation is a function that can be activated with simply a click with each of the semi-dedicated server solutions which we provide. You can do this from the Access/Error Logs section of the custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which we will provide you with to manage your account. When you go there, you shall see every single domain name and subdomain which you have hosted/created in the account listed in alphabetical order. Activating the error logs may be performed individually for each and every one of them by clicking on the On button, that's situated on the right-hand side. By simply clicking on the Off button, you shall disable the log generation if, for instance, you have fixed the issues on the site or you have relocated it somewhere else. Additionally you can download any one of the logs with only a mouse click and if you have the required software on your laptop, you may process them and get easy-to-read graphs and charts which will help you spot the most common issues on the website.
