An error log is an in depth report of the warnings and error messages which site visitors encountered whilst they were surfing your site. This is the raw info that the server has produced and it can help you discover potential problems with your website and handle them in a timely manner, so as to improve the site’s efficiency and to raise the users’ total satisfaction. You can discover a variety of things in an error log - the time when the error occurred, the exact path to the file which the site visitor can't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason why this request couldn't be processed. There are lots of reasons for your website visitors to see an error message - a link which leads to a non-existent file, a script page that cannot be processed correctly by the hosting server, a website access attempt by a blocked IP address, and many others.
