An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings which appeared for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your website. This kind of a log provides raw information on the way the web server has dealt with requests in different situations. An error message could appear if, for instance, a link leads to a webpage or a file that isn't on the server, if the code on a particular page can't be processed, if anyone is trying to access the site or its back office through an IP address that's blocked by an .htaccess rule etc. The data within the error log offers the IP address of the visitor, what error message appeared and the reason for the web server to show it, the full path to the file that generated the error and the exact time of the event. Having this data will help you determine if any part of your website has a problem, that you can then take care of. Consequently, your visitors will have a better experience and you will optimize the site for best performance.
