An error log is an in depth report of the warnings and error messages that website visitors came across whilst they were looking through your site. This is the raw info that the web server has gathered and it can help you discover potential problems with your site and fix them in a timely manner, in order to improve the site’s performance and to add to the users’ total satisfaction. You will find a number of things within an error log - the time when the error appeared, the specific path to the file the site visitor couldn't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason this request cannot be processed. There are different reasons for your site visitors to see an error message - a link which leads to a non-existent file, a script page that cannot be processed in the right way by the server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so on.
Error Log Viewer in Website Hosting
The Hepsia CP, which comes with our website hosting accounts, shall make it very easy to generate and look at an error log for any site that you have within 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 intend to keep an eye on. The button is available for each and every domain name which you have hosted and each subdomain you have created, so you can get an in depth log for each of them separately, as a way to be able to check out the websites for problems simplier and easier. A second click on the same button shall disable the function, but you shall still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, that is available in the exact same section. When required, you can use software on your computer to process the raw web server info for statistical purposes.
