I'm Mohammed Noufal, working as Server Admin for the last 10 years.  In my day-to-day life, l had to face different problems related to Web-hosting. On my website Errorlogz.com, you can find solutions for different Web-hosting-related problems. Sometimes, I spent hours searching/googling to find a solution. This inspired me to start a website that gives solutions to different Webhosting problems. This website includes basic Linux and windows commands, and different control panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, Webmin & so on. You can find solutions and or suggestions for different Web-hosting related problems from here. Hence I would like to say Errorlogz is your server protector.  I will be glad if Logdetect can help any one of the Server admins to find a solution to his problem.
