An error log is a comprehensive report of the warnings and error messages that site visitors faced when they were looking through your Internet site. This is the raw data that the hosting server has gathered and it can help you discover potential issues with your website and resolve them in a timely manner, so as to boost the site’s performance and to increase the users’ satisfaction. You can find a variety of things within an error log - the time when the error appeared, the specific path to the file that 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 which leads to a non-existent file, a script webpage that can't be processed properly by the server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so on.
