An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings that showed up for one reason or another while your visitors were browsing your site. Such a log contains raw information about the way the web server has dealt with requests a number of situations. An error message may appear if, for instance, a link leads to a page or a file that is not on the web server, if the code on a particular page can't be processed, if someone is trying to access the website or its back office through an IP address which is blocked by an .htaccess rule and so on. The data inside the error log features the IP address of the website visitor, what error message showed up 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 figure out if any part of your Internet site has an issue, which you may then take care of. For that reason, your visitors will have a better experience and you may optimize the website for maximum performance.

The Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud web hosting accounts, will make it quite simple to generate and check out an error log for any website that you have within your account. Once you log in, you will need to check out the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the Internet site that you need to keep track of. The button is available for each domain that you have hosted and each subdomain that you have created, so you can get a detailed log for each of them individually, so as to be able to check out the websites for problems much easier. A second click on the same exact button will turn off the function, but you will still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, that is available in the very same section. If required, you can use software on your laptop or computer to process the raw web server info for statistical purposes.
