An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings that appeared for one reason or another while your visitors were looking through your website. Such a log contains raw info about the way the hosting server has dealt with requests in various situations. An error message may appear if, for instance, a link leads to a website or a file that isn't on the server, if the code on a particular page cannot be processed, if any individual is trying to access the Internet site or its back office through an IP address that is blocked by an .htaccess rule and so forth. The data inside the error log features the IP address of the visitor, what error message came out and the basis for the server to show it, the whole path to the file which generated the error and the exact time of the event. Having this information will enable you to figure out if any part of your site has an issue, which you may then fix. As a result, your visitors will have a better experience and you'll optimize the website for optimum performance.
