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. This sort of a log includes raw information on the way the hosting server has handled requests in different situations. An error message might appear if, for example, a link leads to a site or a file that is not on the web server, if the code on a specific page can't be processed, if somebody is trying to access the site or its back office through an IP address that's blocked by an .htaccess rule and so on. The information in the error log includes the IP address of the website visitor, what error message showed up and the root cause for the web server to display it, the full path to the file that caused the error and the specific time of the event. Having this information will enable you to learn if any part of your Internet site has a problem, which you can then deal with. For that reason, your site visitors will have a better experience and you may boost the Internet site for best performance.
