An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings that showed up for one reason or another while your visitors were looking through your website. This kind of a log contains raw information on the way the server has dealt with requests in different situations. An error message could appear if, for instance, a link leads to a page or a file that isn't on the server, if the code on a given page cannot be processed, if somebody is trying to access the website or its back office using an IP address that is blocked by an .htaccess rule etc. The information inside the error log features the IP of the visitor, what error message appeared and the cause for the web server to display it, the entire path to the file which induced the error and the exact time of the event. Having this information will enable you to learn if any part of your website has a problem, which you may then deal with. Consequently, your website visitors will have a better experience and you may boost the Internet site for maximum performance.
