An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings that appeared for one reason or another while your visitors were browsing your site. Such a log contains raw information on the way the web server has addressed requests in various situations. An error message may appear if, for example, a link leads to a webpage or a file that isn't on the hosting server, if the code on a specific page can't be processed, if anyone is trying to access the Internet site or its back office via an IP address which is blocked by an .htaccess rule etc. The info within the error log offers the IP of the website visitor, what error message showed up and the cause for the server to display it, the full path to the file which triggered the error and the specific time of the event. Having this info will allow you to find out if any part of your Internet site has a problem, which you could then take care of. Therefore, your website visitors will have a better experience and you'll supercharge the website for best performance.
