An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages that visitors came across when they were browsing your site. This is the raw data that the hosting server has produced and it could help you find potential issues with your site and handle them in a timely manner, as a way to enhance the site’s functionality and to increase the users’ full satisfaction. You can discover several things within an error log - the time when the error showed up, the specific path to the file the visitor could not access, the IP address the request came from, and the reason why this request cannot be processed. There are numerous reasons for your site visitors to see an error message - a link that leads to a non-existent file, a script webpage that can't be processed properly by the hosting server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so forth.
