An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings which showed up for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your site. This type of a log provides raw information on the way the server has handled requests in different situations. An error message might appear if, for example, a link leads to a site or a file that isn't on the hosting server, if the code on a given page cannot be processed, if any individual is trying to access the site or its back office via an IP address that's blocked by an .htaccess rule and many others. The info within the error log includes the IP address of the website visitor, what error message showed up and the reason for the server to show it, the entire path to the file that generated the error and the exact time of the event. Having this info will help you figure out if any part of your site has an issue, which you could then deal with. Therefore, your website visitors will have a better experience and you will supercharge the website for best performance.
