An error log is an accumulation of data that contains all the errors and warnings encountered by the visitors on your Internet sites. Several examples of what you can find in this sort of a log are: broken links which lead to non-existing files, pages that were not processed in the correct way by the hosting server, which generated an error/warning message for the website visitor, and attempts from unauthorized IP addresses to reach the site or its administrator area. Every entry inside the error log provides the exact time and date the event took place, the visitor’s IP, the precise directory path within the hosting account to the web page or file which had a difficulty and the reason for the error to appear in the first place. Reviewing an error log will permit you to identify and resolve problems on your website, which can boost the efficiency of the website and the users’ experience.

Error Log Viewer in Website Hosting

You can switch on the generation of error logs with ease when you buy a website hosting plan from us. An entire section in the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with the accounts, is dedicated to the logs and switching on this feature will take literally a click. When you navigate to this section, you will see all the hosts you have in the account, including your domain names and subdomains, even those that you may have created to test a site just before it goes live. You just need to click on the On button for the ones that you would like to be closely watched by our system and it will commence generating error logs at once. To switch off the feature, you will only have to click the same button again. Every single error log may be downloaded and saved to your personal computer anytime, even when you have turned off the function.

Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Servers

The error log generation is a feature that may be enabled with just a click with each of the semi-dedicated server packages which we provide. You can do this via the Access/Error Logs section of the in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which we'll give you to manage your account. After you navigate there, you will see each domain name and subdomain that you have hosted/created in the account listed in alphabetical order. Activating the error logs can be performed independently for every one of them by pressing the On button, which is situated on the right-hand side. By simply clicking on the Off button, you will turn off the log generation if, for example, you've solved the issues on the website or you have migrated it someplace else. Additionally you can download any one of the logs with only a click and if you have the needed software on your laptop, you could process them and get easy-to-read graphs and charts that will help you spot the most common problems on the site.
