An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings that displayed for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your Internet site. This sort of a log provides raw information about the way the hosting server has dealt with requests in various situations. An error message could appear if, for instance, a link leads to a website or a file that isn't on the web server, if the code on a given page cannot be processed, if anyone is trying to access the Internet site or its back office through an IP address that's blocked by an .htaccess rule etc. The info inside the error log offers the IP of the visitor, what error message showed up and the cause for the web server to display it, the whole path to the file which generated the error and the specific time of the event. Having this information will enable you to determine if any part of your site has an issue, which you can then take care of. For that reason, your website visitors will have a better experience and you'll optimize the site for best performance.
