An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings that displayed for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your site. Such a log contains raw info on the way the web server has addressed requests in various situations. An error message might appear if, for example, a link leads to a website or a file that is not on the web server, if the code on a specific page can't be processed, if somebody is trying to access the site or its back office using an IP address which is blocked by an .htaccess rule and so forth. The information within the error log includes the IP address of the visitor, what error message displayed and the reason for the web server to show it, the whole path to the file which triggered the error and the precise time of the event. Having this data will allow you to learn if any part of your Internet site has an issue, which you could then take care of. Consequently, your site visitors will have a better experience and you will optimize the site for optimum performance.
