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 site. This type of a log includes raw information on the way the web server has handled requests in different situations. An error message might appear if, for example, a link leads to a site or a file that is not on the server, if the code on a particular page can't be processed, if anyone is trying to access the website or its back office via an IP address that is blocked by an .htaccess rule and so on. The information inside the error log includes the IP of the site visitor, what error message displayed and the basis for the hosting server to display it, the entire path to the file that triggered the error and the specific time of the event. Having this data will allow you to figure out if any part of your site has a problem, which you may then clear up. As a result, your visitors will have a better experience and you'll boost the site for best performance.

You just have to click on the On button for the ones that you would like to be closely watched by our system and it will begin generating error logs at once. To turn off the feature, you'll just have to click the exact same button once more. Each and every error log can be downloaded and saved to your computer whenever you want, even when you have deactivated the function.
