An error log is a collection of information which contains all of the errors and warnings experienced by the readers on your websites. Various examples of what you may find in this sort of a log are: broken links that lead to non-existing files, pages that were not processed in the correct way by the web server, which resulted in an error/warning message for the site visitor, and attempts from unauthorized IP addresses to access the website or its admin area. Each and every entry within the error log offers the exact date and time the event took place, the visitor’s IP address, the specific directory path within the hosting account to the web page or file that had a problem and the reason for the error to appear in the first place. Inspecting an error log will allow you to identify and fix issues on your website, which could improve the functionality of the site and the users’ experience.
Error Log Viewer in Hosting
You can activate the generation of error logs easily when you purchase a hosting
plan from us. An entire section in the Hepsia CP, provided with the accounts, is devoted to the logs and activating this function requires literally a mouse click. Once you check out this section, you shall see all the hosts you have inside the account, including your domain names
and subdomains, even the ones that you may have created to test an Internet site before it goes live. You only need to press the On button for the ones that you would like to be closely watched by our system and it'll commence generating error logs almost immediately. To switch off the function, you'll just have to click the same button again. Any error log can be downloaded and saved to your computer at any time, even if you have deactivated the function.
Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to produce error logs for each and every website that you host inside a semi-dedicated server account on our highly developed website hosting platform. This feature can be enabled via the Hepsia Control Panel. As you log in and proceed to the Access/Error Logs section, you’ll just have to click on the On button for the domain name or subdomain that you need, as all of the domains/subdomains that you have hosted/created inside the account will be listed there. You could enable the error logs separately for each site, so you will be able to keep track only of the ones that you would like. Clicking once more on exactly the same button will deactivate the error log generation. You shall also find a Download link inside the exact same section, so you will be able to save the information created by the server and, when necessary, run it through some software using your laptop to get user-friendly charts and to correct any possible problems on your site a lot easier.
