An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages that site visitors encountered as they were surfing around your website. This is the raw data that the hosting server has produced and it will help you find potential issues with your Internet site and fix them in a timely manner, as a way to improve the site’s overall performance and to raise the users’ total satisfaction. You will find many things within an error log - the time when the error occurred, the specific path to the file that the website visitor can't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason this request couldn't be processed. There are lots of reasons for your website visitors to see an error message - a link that leads to a non-existent file, a script website that can't be processed in the correct way by the hosting server, a website access attempt by a blocked IP address, etc.
