An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings which displayed for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your site. This sort of a log contains raw info 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 site or a file that isn't on the web server, if the code on a particular page cannot be processed, if anyone is trying to access the website or its back office via an IP address that's blocked by an .htaccess rule and so on. The information in the error log features the IP address of the visitor, what error message came out and the reason for the hosting server to show it, the whole path to the file which induced the error and the specific 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 clear up. As a result, your site visitors will have a better experience and you'll optimize the website for optimum performance.
