An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings which appeared for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your site. This kind of a log contains raw information on the way the web server has addressed requests in various situations. An error message might appear if, for instance, a link leads to a website or a file that is not on the hosting server, if the code on a specific page can't be processed, if someone is trying to access the website 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 website visitor, what error message came out and the cause for the hosting server to show it, the full path to the file that caused the error and the exact time of the event. Having this information will enable you to determine if any part of your site has an issue, which you can then take care of. For that reason, your site visitors will have a better experience and you may supercharge the website for best performance.
