An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings that showed up for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your site. This kind of a log contains raw info on the way the hosting server has dealt with requests in various situations. An error message may appear if, for instance, a link leads to a webpage or a file that isn't on the hosting server, if the code on a specific page cannot be processed, if someone is trying to access the Internet site or its back office using an IP address which is blocked by an .htaccess rule and many others. The information in the error log includes the IP of the website visitor, what error message came out and the root cause for the hosting server to show it, the entire path to the file which triggered the error and the precise time of the event. Having this data will allow you to figure out if any part of your Internet site has a problem, which you could then resolve. Consequently, your site visitors will have a better experience and you may optimize the website for optimum performance.
