An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages which site visitors encountered whilst they were surfing around your Internet site. This is the raw info that the web server has gathered and it could help you find potential issues with your website and handle them in a timely manner, so as to boost the site’s functionality and to increase the users’ total satisfaction. You can find a number of things in an error log - the time when the error showed up, the actual path to the file the website visitor couldn't access, the IP address the request came from, and the reason why this request cannot be processed. There are numerous reasons for your site visitors to see an error message - a link which leads to a non-existent file, a script webpage that can't be processed adequately by the web server, a website access attempt by a blocked IP address, etc.
