An error log is a comprehensive report of the warnings and error messages which site visitors faced whilst they were surfing around your Internet site. This is the raw info that the hosting server has produced and it can help you discover potential issues with your site and fix them in a timely manner, in order to enhance the site’s overall performance and to add to the users’ total satisfaction. You can discover quite a few things inside an error log - the time when the error occurred, the exact path to the file that the site visitor couldn't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason why this request cannot be processed. There are various reasons for your site visitors to see an error message - a link that leads to a non-existent file, a script site that can't be processed in the right way by the server, a website access attempt by a blocked IP address, etc.
