An error log is an in depth report of the warnings and error messages that visitors came across when they were surfing your website. This is the raw data that the web server has accumulated and it could help you discover potential problems with your site and handle them in a timely manner, so as to enhance the site’s overall performance and to add to the users’ total satisfaction. You will find several things inside an error log - the time when the error occurred, the actual path to the file the site visitor can't access, the IP address the request came from, and the reason this request couldn't be processed. There are different reasons for your visitors to see an error message - a link which leads to a non-existent file, a script webpage that can't be processed in the correct way by the hosting server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, and many others.
