An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings which appeared for one reason or another while your visitors were browsing your site. This sort of a log contains raw info about the way the web server has addressed requests in different situations. An error message may appear if, for instance, a link leads to a page or a file that isn't on the server, if the code on a certain page cannot be processed, if someone is trying to access the site or its back office via an IP address which is blocked by an .htaccess rule etc. The info within the error log offers the IP of the visitor, what error message appeared and the cause for the web server to show it, the whole path to the file which induced the error and the exact time of the event. Having this information will enable you to find out if any part of your site has a problem, that you can then fix. For that reason, your site visitors will have a better experience and you will boost the site for optimum performance.

Error Log Viewer in Cloud Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud web hosting accounts, shall make it easy to generate and view an error log for any Internet site that you have within your account. After 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 monitor. The button is available for each domain which you have hosted and each subdomain that you have set up, so you can get an in depth log for each of them independently, so as to be able to check the websites for problems easier. A second click on the same exact button will turn off the function, but you'll still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, that is available inside the very same section. When required, you can use software on your laptop or computer to process the raw server data for statistical purposes.
