An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings which showed up for one reason or another while your visitors were looking through your site. Such a log provides raw info about the way the web server has addressed requests in different situations. An error message might appear if, for instance, a link leads to a page or a file that's not on the web server, if the code on a particular page cannot be processed, if somebody is trying to access the Internet site or its back office using an IP address which is blocked by an .htaccess rule and so forth. The info inside the error log features the IP address of the site visitor, what error message showed up and the root cause for the web server to show it, the entire path to the file that induced the error and the precise time of the event. Having this information will enable you to figure out if any part of your Internet site has a problem, which you can then fix. Consequently, your website visitors will have a better experience and you may optimize the website for best performance.
