An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings that showed up for one reason or another while your visitors were browsing your Internet site. This type of a log provides raw information on the way the web server has handled requests in various situations. An error message may appear if, for instance, a link leads to a webpage or a file that is not on the hosting server, if the code on a certain page can't be processed, if somebody is trying to access the site or its back office through an IP address that's blocked by an .htaccess rule and so forth. The information in the error log includes the IP address of the website visitor, what error message displayed and the basis for the hosting server to show it, the full path to the file that generated the error and the precise time of the event. Having this data will permit you to find out if any part of your Internet site has a problem, which you could then deal with. As a result, your visitors will have a better experience and you may boost the Internet site for best performance.
