An error log is a collection of information that features all of the errors and warnings experienced by the guests on your Internet sites. Various examples of what you could find in this kind of a log are: broken links which lead to non-existing files, pages which were not processed properly by the hosting server, which resulted in an error/warning message for the visitor, and attempts from unauthorized IP addresses to access the site or its administrator area. Every single entry in the error log offers the exact time and date the event took place, the visitor’s IP, the precise directory path inside the hosting account to the Internet site or file which had a problem and the reason for the error to appear to begin with. Reviewing an error log will allow you to locate and fix problems on your Internet site, which can improve the functionality of the site and the users’ experience.

Error Log Viewer in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia CP, supplied with our shared hosting accounts, will make it very easy to generate and view an error log for any Internet site that you have in 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 each domain 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 monitor the sites for problems simplier and easier. A second click on the same exact button shall disable the feature, but you shall still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, which is available in the very same section. If required, you can use software on your computer system to process the raw server data for statistical purposes.

Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Servers

The error log generation is a function that may be switched on with only a click with any of the semi-dedicated server plans we provide. This can be done through the Access/Error Logs section of the in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which we shall give you to manage the account. After you go there, you'll see each and every domain and subdomain that you have hosted/created within the account listed in alphabetical order. Enabling the error logs can be done one at a time for each one of them by clicking on the On button, which is located on the right-hand side. By simply clicking the Off button, you shall turn off the log generation if, for instance, you have resolved the issues on the site or you have relocated it elsewhere. Also you can download any of the logs with simply a mouse click and if you have the required software on your PC, you may process them and get easy-to-read graphs and charts that'll allow you to spot the most common problems on the website.
