An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages which visitors faced whilst they were surfing around your site. This is the raw information that the web server has produced and it may help you discover potential problems with your site and fix them in a timely manner, in order to enhance the site’s functionality and to raise the users’ full satisfaction. You will find a variety of things within an error log - the time when the error appeared, the specific path to the file which the website visitor can't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason this request couldn't be processed. There are various reasons for your visitors to see an error message - a link leading to a non-existent file, a script webpage that can't be processed correctly by the hosting server, a website access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so on.
