An error log is a comprehensive report of the warnings and error messages that website visitors faced whilst they were browsing your website. This is the raw information that the web server has produced and it will help you locate potential problems with your site and resolve them in a timely manner, as a way to improve the site’s functionality and to raise the users’ full satisfaction. You can discover quite a few things inside an error log - the time when the error appeared, the specific path to the file the site visitor could not access, the IP the request came from, and the reason why this request couldn't be processed. There are various reasons for your site visitors to see an error message - a link that leads to a non-existent file, a script website that can't be processed properly by the hosting server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so forth.
