An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings that showed up for one reason or another while your visitors were browsing your site. This kind of a log provides raw information on the way the server has dealt with 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 certain page can't be processed, if any individual is trying to access the Internet site or its back office using an IP address that is blocked by an .htaccess rule etc. The information in the error log includes the IP of the site visitor, what error message came out and the basis for the web server to display it, the whole path to the file which triggered the error and the specific time of the event. Having this info will help you figure out if any part of your Internet site has an issue, that you can then fix. Consequently, your visitors will have a better experience and you'll optimize the website for maximum performance.
