Error Log

This log is created by web filter ICAP daemon in /opt/websafety/var/log/error.log. This file is used to store information about program activity of wsicapd daemon. The error, info, warning and debug messages are logged to this file based on log level specified in the Admin UI. By default only informational messages are logged. Some critical start up messages may also be logged on console and/or dumped into syslog.
