An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages which visitors came across as they were surfing your site. This is the raw data that the server has generated and it can help you locate potential problems with your site and resolve them in a timely manner, so as to improve the site’s functionality and to add to the users’ full satisfaction. You will find many things inside an error log - the time when the error occurred, the exact path to the file that the visitor could not access, the IP the request came from, and the reason this request cannot be processed. There are various 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 so forth.
