An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings that appeared for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your Internet site. This kind of a log contains raw information on the way the web server has handled requests in different situations. An error message may appear if, for instance, a link leads to a site or a file that is not on the server, if the code on a specific page cannot be processed, if any individual is trying to access the site or its back office using an IP address which is blocked by an .htaccess rule and many others. The info in the error log includes the IP address of the site visitor, what error message displayed and the reason for the hosting server to show it, the entire path to the file that induced the error and the specific time of the event. Having this information will enable you to find out if any part of your site has a problem, which you can then take care of. Consequently, your website visitors will have a better experience and you may optimize the Internet site for maximum performance.
