An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings that showed up for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your Internet site. This kind of a log features raw info about the way the web server has dealt with requests in various situations. An error message might appear if, for instance, a link leads to a page or a file that's not on the server, if the code on a specific page cannot be processed, if any individual is trying to access the site or its back office via an IP address which is blocked by an .htaccess rule and so forth. The data inside the error log includes the IP address of the visitor, what error message displayed and the basis for the web server to display it, the entire path to the file which generated the error and the specific time of the event. Having this data will permit you to find out if any part of your website has a problem, which you may then fix. As a result, your website visitors will have a better experience and you will optimize the website for best performance.
