An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages which site visitors encountered while they were looking through your site. This is the raw information that the web server has produced and it can help you locate potential issues with your site and solve them in a timely manner, so as to improve the site’s functionality and to increase the users’ full satisfaction. You can find several things within an error log - the time when the error showed up, the exact path to the file the website visitor couldn't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason why this request cannot be processed. There are different reasons for your site visitors to see an error message - a link leading to a non-existent file, a script webpage that can't be processed in the right way by the web server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, and many others.
