An error log is an in depth report of the warnings and error messages that site visitors faced as they were looking through your site. This is the raw info that the web server has accumulated and it can help you find potential issues with your website and solve them in a timely manner, in order to boost the site’s overall performance and to add to the users’ full satisfaction. You can find several things within an error log - the time when the error showed up, the actual path to the file the visitor can't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason this request cannot be processed. There are lots of reasons for your visitors to see an error message - a link which leads to a non-existent file, a script website that cannot be processed in the right way by the server, a website access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so forth.
