An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages which website visitors came across whilst they were browsing your site. This is the raw data that the web server has generated and it may help you locate potential issues with your Internet site and fix them in a timely manner, as a way to enhance the site’s functionality and to increase the users’ satisfaction. You can discover several things in an error log - the time when the error occurred, the exact path to the file which the website visitor can't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason why this request couldn't be processed. There are numerous 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 web server, a website access attempt by a blocked IP address, etc.
