An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages which website visitors came across when they were looking through your website. This is the raw information that the web server has produced and it can help you discover potential issues with your Internet site and solve them in a timely manner, in order to improve the site’s functionality and to increase the users’ full satisfaction. You will find several things within an error log - the time when the error appeared, the specific path to the file the visitor can't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason why this request couldn't be processed. There are various reasons for your visitors to see an error message - a link which leads to a non-existent file, a script site that cannot be processed correctly by the server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so on.

The button is available for every single domain which you have hosted and every subdomain which you have set up, so you can get a detailed log for each of them individually, in order to be able to check out the websites for problems easier. A second click on the same button shall deactivate the function, but you shall still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, that's available in the exact same section.

Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to generate error logs for each and every Internet site that you host within a semi-dedicated server account on our sophisticated website hosting platform.

You'll be able to enable the error logs separately for each and every Internet site, so you'll be able to keep track only of the ones that you want. Clicking once again on exactly the same button will turn off the error log generation. You'll also find a Download link within the same section, so you shall be able to save the information produced by the web server and, if needed, run it through some software on your computer system to get user-friendly charts and to deal with any possible problems on your Internet site simpler.
