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 site. This sort of a log provides raw information on the way the hosting server has handled requests in different situations. An error message might appear if, for example, a link leads to a website or a file that isn't on the web server, if the code on a given page can't be processed, if anyone is trying to access the website or its back office via an IP address that is blocked by an .htaccess rule etc. The information in the error log includes the IP address of the site visitor, what error message came out and the root cause for the hosting server to display it, the entire path to the file which induced the error and the specific time of the event. Having this information will enable you to determine if any part of your Internet site has an issue, which you could then take care of. For that reason, your site visitors will have a better experience and you will supercharge the website for maximum performance.
