An error log is a list 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 dealt with requests in various situations. An error message might appear if, for example, a link leads to a webpage or a file that's not on the web server, if the code on a certain page cannot be processed, if anyone is trying to access the site or its back office using an IP address that's blocked by an .htaccess rule and so on. The info within the error log offers the IP of the site visitor, what error message displayed and the reason for the web server to show it, the entire path to the file that triggered the error and the precise time of the event. Having this data will permit you to learn if any part of your site has an issue, which you may then take care of. For that reason, your site visitors will have a better experience and you'll optimize the website for optimum performance.
