An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages which website visitors faced while they were surfing around your site. This is the raw information that the web server has generated and it may help you locate potential issues with your website and resolve them in a timely manner, so as to enhance the site’s efficiency and to add to the users’ satisfaction. You can find quite a few things inside an error log - the time when the error showed up, the actual path to the file that the site visitor couldn't access, the IP address the request came from, and the reason this request could not be processed. There are various reasons for your website visitors to see an error message - a link leading to a non-existent file, a script page that can't be processed in the correct way by the hosting server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, etc.

Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to produce error logs for every website that you host inside a semi-dedicated server account on our advanced website hosting platform.
