An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages that site visitors encountered as they were surfing your site. This is the raw info that the server has gathered and it can help you locate potential problems with your site and solve them in a timely manner, so as to enhance the site’s functionality and to raise the users’ satisfaction. You will find many things in an error log - the time when the error showed up, the specific path to the file which the site visitor can't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason this request couldn't be processed. There are lots of reasons for your site visitors to see an error message - a link that leads to a non-existent file, a script webpage that cannot be processed properly by the server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, etc.
