An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings which appeared for one reason or another while your visitors were looking through your website. This kind of a log contains raw info on the way the web server has addressed requests in different situations. An error message might appear if, for instance, a link leads to a site or a file that's not on the server, if the code on a particular page cannot be processed, if any individual is trying to access the site or its back office via an IP address that is blocked by an .htaccess rule and so forth. The information inside the error log includes the IP of the site visitor, what error message showed up and the cause for the server to display it, the whole path to the file that caused the error and the precise time of the event. Having this info will help you figure out if any part of your website has an issue, which you can then deal with. For that reason, your website visitors will have a better experience and you will supercharge the site for optimum performance.
Error Log Viewer in Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our hosting accounts, will make it quite simple to generate and check out an error log for any Internet site that you have in your account. When 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 would like to keep tabs on. The button is available for each and every domain which you have hosted and each subdomain you have created, so you can get an in depth log for every single one of them separately, in order to be able to check out the websites for problems much easier. A second click on the same exact button will deactivate the feature, but you'll still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, that is available inside the exact same section. When necessary, you can use software on your PC to process the raw hosting server info for statistical purposes.
