An error log is a comprehensive report of the warnings and error messages which site visitors encountered when they were browsing your site. This is the raw info that the web server has produced and it will help you locate potential issues with your site and resolve them in a timely manner, so as to improve the site’s overall performance and to raise the users’ satisfaction. You can find quite a few things within an error log - the time when the error appeared, the specific path to the file the site visitor could not access, the IP address the request came from, and the reason this request cannot be processed. There are lots of reasons for your website visitors to see an error message - a link that leads to a non-existent file, a script page that cannot be processed in the right way by the server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, etc.
