An error log is an in depth report of the warnings and error messages which website visitors encountered whilst they were browsing your site. This is the raw data that the web server has accumulated and it may help you discover potential issues with your Internet site and solve them in a timely manner, so as to enhance the site’s overall performance and to increase the users’ satisfaction. You can find a number of things in an error log - the time when the error occurred, the exact path to the file that the site visitor can't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason why this request cannot be processed. There are various reasons for your visitors to see an error message - a link leading to a non-existent file, a script site that can't be processed in the right way by the web server, a website access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so on.

Error Log Viewer in Cloud Website Hosting

When you log in, you 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 every single domain that you have hosted and every subdomain that you have set up, so you can get a detailed log for each of them separately, in order to be able to monitor the sites for problems simplier and easier. A second click on the same exact button will turn off the feature, but you shall still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, that is available in the same section. When necessary, you can use software on your computer system to process the raw server info for statistical purposes.

Clicking once more on the very same button will disable the error log generation. You'll also find a Download link in the very same section, so you'll be able to save the data produced by the web server and, if needed, run it through some software on your PC to get user-friendly charts and to deal with any potential problems on your site much easier.
