An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings that displayed for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your website. This sort of a log provides raw information on the way the hosting server has dealt with requests in different situations. An error message might appear if, for example, a link leads to a site or a file that's not on the hosting server, if the code on a particular page cannot be processed, if somebody is trying to access the website or its back office using an IP address that is blocked by an .htaccess rule and many others. The data inside the error log features the IP of the website visitor, what error message displayed and the root cause for the hosting server to display it, the whole path to the file which generated the error and the precise time of the event. Having this information will allow you to learn if any part of your site has a problem, that you can then clear up. For that reason, your site visitors will have a better experience and you'll optimize the website for optimum performance.

As you log in, you need to go to the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the Internet site that you want to keep an eye on.

The error log generation is a function that may be activated with only a mouse click with each of the semi-dedicated server plans we offer.
