An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages which site visitors came across when they were browsing your site. This is the raw information that the hosting server has produced and it could help you find potential issues with your Internet site and fix them in a timely manner, in order to boost the site’s functionality and to increase the users’ total satisfaction. You will find quite a few things in an error log - the time when the error showed up, the specific path to the file which the site visitor could not access, the IP address the request came from, and the reason this request couldn't be processed. There are numerous reasons for your site visitors to see an error message - a link which leads to a non-existent file, a script webpage that cannot be processed correctly by the server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so on.
