An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings that displayed for one reason or another while your visitors were looking through your site. This kind of a log contains raw information on the way the server has addressed requests in various situations. An error message might appear if, for instance, a link leads to a website or a file that isn't on the hosting server, if the code on a certain page can't be processed, if somebody is trying to access the website or its back office through an IP address that's blocked by an .htaccess rule and so forth. The info in the error log features the IP address of the site visitor, what error message displayed and the root cause for the web server to show it, the entire path to the file which triggered the error and the precise time of the event. Having this data will help you learn if any part of your Internet site has a problem, which you can then clear up. Therefore, your site visitors will have a better experience and you may optimize the website for maximum performance.
Error Log Viewer in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, offered with our shared website hosting accounts, will make it really easy to generate and look at an error log for any Internet site that you have within your account. After you log in, you need to navigate to the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the website that you want to monitor. The button is available for each domain name which you have hosted and each subdomain that you have created, so you can get a detailed log for every single one of them individually, as a way to be able to check out the websites for problems much easier. A second click on the same exact button shall deactivate the feature, but you'll still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, that's available within the very same section. When required, you can use software on your laptop or computer to process the raw web server data for statistical purposes.
