An error log is an accumulation of data that includes all the errors and warnings experienced by the visitors on your Internet sites. Several examples of what you could find in such a log are: broken links that lead to non-existing files, pages which were not processed properly by the web server, which caused an error/warning message for the visitor, and attempts from unauthorized IP addresses to get to the site or its admin area. Every entry inside the error log contains the exact date and time the event occurred, the visitor’s IP address, the precise directory path inside the hosting account to the web page or file which had a problem and the cause for the error to appear in the first place. Inspecting an error log will allow you to discover and correct issues on your site, which can improve the functionality of the website and the users’ experience.

Error Log Viewer in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our cloud hosting accounts, will make it really easy to generate and view an error log for any site that you have within your account. When you log in, you need to navigate to the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the Internet site that you intend to keep track of. The button is available for every single domain name that you have hosted and each subdomain you have created, so you can get a detailed log for each and every one of them individually, so that you can be able to check the sites for problems easier. A second click on the same button shall turn off the feature, but you'll still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, which is available within the very same section. If required, you can use software on your laptop or computer to process the raw hosting server data for statistical purposes.

Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Servers

The error log generation is a feature which can be activated with only a click with each of the semi-dedicated server plans which we offer. You can do this from the Access/Error Logs section of the in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which we'll supply you with to manage the account. Once you navigate there, you will see each and every domain name and subdomain which you have hosted/created within the account listed in alphabetical order. Enabling the error logs can be done independently for each one of them by clicking on the On button, that's located on the right-hand side. By simply clicking on the Off button, you can disable the log generation if, for instance, you have resolved the problems on the site or you have moved it elsewhere. Also you can download any of the logs with only a click and if you have the required software on your laptop, you can process them and get easy-to-read graphs and charts which will help you spot the most common issues on the site.
