An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings that showed up for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your site. This type of a log includes raw information on the way the hosting server has addressed requests in various situations. An error message could appear if, for example, a link leads to a webpage or a file that is not on the hosting server, if the code on a specific page cannot be processed, if somebody is trying to access the Internet site or its back office using an IP address that is blocked by an .htaccess rule and so forth. The info inside the error log offers the IP address of the website visitor, what error message appeared and the basis for the hosting server to show it, the whole path to the file that caused the error and the precise time of the event. Having this info will help you find out if any part of your Internet site has a problem, which you can then fix. As a result, your visitors will have a better experience and you will boost the Internet site for optimum performance.
