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 features raw information about the way the web server has handled requests in various situations. An error message might appear if, for instance, a link leads to a site or a file that isn't on the web server, if the code on a particular page can't be processed, if anyone is trying to access the site or its back office via an IP address which is blocked by an .htaccess rule and so forth. The information within the error log includes the IP of the visitor, what error message appeared and the basis for the web server to display it, the whole path to the file which induced the error and the precise time of the event. Having this information will allow you to find out if any part of your site has a problem, which you could then fix. As a result, your site visitors will have a better experience and you'll optimize the Internet site for maximum performance.
Error Log Viewer in Shared Website Hosting
The Hepsia CP, provided with our shared website hosting accounts, will make it quite simple to generate and check out an error log for any website that you have inside your account. As you log in, you have to navigate to the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the site that you want to keep tabs on. The button is available for every single domain which you have hosted and each subdomain which you have created, so you can get an in depth log for each and every one of them separately, so as to be able to monitor the websites for problems a lot easier. A second click on the same exact button will turn off the feature, but you'll still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, that's available within the same section. When necessary, you can use software on your PC to process the raw web server info for statistical purposes.
