An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings that showed up for one reason or another while your visitors were looking through your site. This type of a log includes raw info about the way the web server has handled requests in various situations. An error message could appear if, for example, a link leads to a page or a file that isn't on the web server, if the code on a particular page can't be processed, if anyone is trying to access the website or its back office through an IP address that is blocked by an .htaccess rule and many others. The information in the error log includes the IP address of the website visitor, what error message came out and the root cause for the hosting server to show it, the full path to the file which caused the error and the precise time of the event. Having this info will enable you to learn if any part of your Internet site has an issue, that you can then deal with. Consequently, your site visitors will have a better experience and you may optimize the Internet site for optimum performance.
