An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings that showed up for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your website. This kind of a log contains raw info on the way the server has dealt with requests in various situations. An error message may appear if, for instance, a link leads to a page or a file that's not on the server, if the code on a certain page can't be processed, if anyone is trying to access the website or its back office using an IP address which is blocked by an .htaccess rule etc. The data inside the error log includes the IP address of the website visitor, what error message displayed and the root cause for the web server to display it, the whole path to the file that triggered the error and the precise time of the event. Having this info will permit you to determine if any part of your site has an issue, that you can then fix. Consequently, your website visitors will have a better experience and you will boost the Internet site for best performance.
