An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings which appeared for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your Internet site. This sort of a log includes raw info on the way the hosting server has handled requests in various situations. An error message might appear if, for example, a link leads to a webpage or a file that is not on the server, if the code on a given page can't be processed, if anyone is trying to access the site or its back office through an IP address that is blocked by an .htaccess rule and many others. The info within the error log offers the IP of the website visitor, what error message appeared and the reason for the hosting server to display it, the whole path to the file which induced the error and the exact time of the event. Having this info will help you figure out if any part of your website has an issue, that you can then fix. Consequently, your site visitors will have a better experience and you'll optimize the Internet site for optimum performance.
