An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings that displayed for one reason or another while your visitors were looking through your website. Such a log includes raw information about the way the server has dealt with requests in different situations. An error message could appear if, for example, a link leads to a website or a file that's not on the web server, if the code on a certain page can't be processed, if somebody is trying to access the website or its back office using an IP address that is blocked by an .htaccess rule and many others. The information inside the error log includes the IP of the site visitor, what error message came out and the root cause for the web server to display it, the whole path to the file that caused the error and the specific time of the event. Having this information will permit you to find out if any part of your website has a problem, which you could then resolve. For that reason, your site visitors will have a better experience and you will optimize the Internet site for best performance.
