An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages that visitors came across whilst they were looking through your website. This is the raw data that the server has gathered and it will help you locate potential problems with your site and handle them in a timely manner, as a way to improve the site’s performance and to raise the users’ total satisfaction. You will find a variety of things within an error log - the time when the error showed up, the specific path to the file the site visitor couldn't access, the IP address the request came from, and the reason why this request couldn't be processed. There are lots of reasons for your site visitors to see an error message - a link leading to a non-existent file, a script page that cannot be processed properly by the hosting server, a website access attempt by a blocked IP address, and many others.
Error Log Viewer in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, offered with our shared hosting accounts, shall make it very simple to generate and check out an error log for any site that you have inside your account. When you log in, you need to check out the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the site that you need to keep tabs on. The button is available for each and every domain name which you have hosted and every subdomain that you have created, so you can get a detailed log for each and every one of them individually, as a way to be able to monitor the websites for problems much easier. A second click on the same exact button will disable the function, but you will still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, that is available within the exact same section. When required, you can use software on your computer to process the raw server info for statistical purposes.
