An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings that displayed for one reason or another while your visitors were browsing your site. This sort of a log contains raw info on the way the server has handled requests in different situations. An error message could appear if, for instance, a link leads to a page or a file that's not on the hosting server, if the code on a given page can't be processed, if any individual is trying to access the Internet site or its back office via an IP address which is blocked by an .htaccess rule and so on. The data inside the error log includes the IP address of the visitor, what error message appeared and the cause for the hosting server to display it, the entire path to the file which triggered the error and the precise time of the event. Having this information will allow you to figure out if any part of your website has a problem, which you can then clear up. Consequently, your website visitors will have a better experience and you may supercharge the Internet site for maximum performance.
Error Log Viewer in Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, provided with our website hosting accounts, will make it very easy to generate and look at an error log for any website that you have inside your account. As you log in, you have to check out the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the site that you would like to keep an eye on. The button is available for every single domain that you have hosted and every subdomain you have created, so you can get a detailed log for each and every one of them individually, so as to be able to examine the sites for problems simplier and easier. A second click on the very same button will deactivate the feature, but you'll still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, which is available inside the exact same section. When required, you can use software on your laptop or computer to process the raw web server info for statistical purposes.
