An error log is an accumulation of information that features all the errors and warnings experienced by the visitors on your websites. Various examples of what you may find in such a log are: broken links that lead to non-existing files, pages which were not processed correctly by the hosting server, which generated an error/warning message for the site visitor, and attempts from unauthorized IP addresses to get to the website or its admin area. Every entry inside the error log provides the exact time and date the event took place, the visitor’s IP, the exact directory path inside the hosting account to the site or file that had a problem and the cause for the error to appear in the first place. Checking out an error log will permit you to locate and correct issues on your website, which will enhance the overall performance of the Internet site and the users’ experience.

Error Log Viewer in Shared Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared website hosting accounts, will make it easy to generate and look at an error log for any website that you have inside your account. Once you log in, you will need to navigate to the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the website that you would like to monitor. The button is available for each domain you have hosted and each subdomain that you have created, so you can get a comprehensive log for each and every one of them independently, in order to be able to check the sites 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's available in the very same section. When necessary, you can use software on your PC to process the raw server info for statistical purposes.
