An error log is a comprehensive report of the warnings and error messages which site visitors came across when they were looking through your website. This is the raw data that the hosting server has gathered and it can help you discover potential problems with your site and handle them in a timely manner, so as to enhance the site’s efficiency and to increase the users’ total satisfaction. You can find several things inside an error log - the time when the error showed up, the specific path to the file that the visitor couldn't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason this request cannot be processed. There are different reasons for your visitors to see an error message - a link leading to a non-existent file, a script website that cannot be processed in the right way by the hosting server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so forth.
