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. This type of a log includes raw information about the way the web server has dealt with requests a number of situations. An error message might appear if, for example, a link leads to a webpage or a file that's not on the server, if the code on a specific page cannot be processed, if somebody is trying to access the site or its back office via an IP address that is blocked by an .htaccess rule and so forth. The data in the error log offers the IP address of the visitor, what error message displayed and the cause for the web server to display 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 learn if any part of your Internet site has an issue, which you can then take care of. Consequently, your visitors will have a better experience and you'll optimize the website for best performance.
