An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings that appeared for one reason or another while your visitors were looking through your website. This kind of a log provides raw information about the way the hosting server has addressed requests in different situations. An error message might appear if, for instance, a link leads to a page or a file that is not on the web server, if the code on a particular page cannot be processed, if anyone is trying to access the site or its back office through an IP address which is blocked by an .htaccess rule and so on. The information in the error log includes the IP address of the visitor, what error message appeared and the basis for the web server to show it, the entire path to the file that generated the error and the precise time of the event. Having this information will help you determine if any part of your website has a problem, which you could then clear up. For that reason, your visitors will have a better experience and you will boost the site for maximum performance.
