An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings that showed up for one reason or another while your visitors were browsing your Internet site. Such a log includes raw info on the way the server has handled requests in different situations. An error message could appear if, for instance, a link leads to a webpage or a file that's not on the web server, if the code on a given page cannot be processed, if anyone is trying to access the Internet site or its back office via an IP address that is blocked by an .htaccess rule and many others. The information in the error log features the IP address of the visitor, what error message came out and the cause for the hosting server to show it, the full path to the file which induced the error and the exact time of the event. Having this data will allow you to learn if any part of your Internet site has an issue, which you may then clear up. Consequently, your site visitors will have a better experience and you will boost the website for maximum performance.
