An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings which showed up for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your site. This type of a log provides raw info on the way the hosting server has handled requests a number of situations. An error message could appear if, for instance, a link leads to a page or a file that isn't on the server, if the code on a given page can't be processed, if someone is trying to access the website or its back office through an IP address that's blocked by an .htaccess rule and so on. The data within the error log features the IP of the visitor, what error message showed up and the basis for the web server to show it, the whole path to the file that induced the error and the exact time of the event. Having this info will allow you to figure out if any part of your website has a problem, that you can then resolve. Consequently, your site visitors will have a better experience and you will boost the Internet site for optimum performance.
