An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings which displayed for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your website. This sort of a log provides raw information about the way the web server has addressed requests in different situations. An error message could appear if, for instance, a link leads to a page or a file that is not on the hosting server, if the code on a given page cannot be processed, if somebody is trying to access the site or its back office through an IP address which is blocked by an .htaccess rule etc. The info in the error log offers the IP address of the site visitor, what error message came out and the basis for the web server to display it, the full path to the file that triggered the error and the specific time of the event. Having this data will enable you to determine if any part of your website has an issue, which you could then resolve. For that reason, your site visitors will have a better experience and you may boost the site for optimum performance.
