An error log is an in depth report of the warnings and error messages that visitors came across as they were looking through your site. This is the raw information that the web server has gathered and it will help you discover potential problems with your site and handle them in a timely manner, so as to enhance the site’s overall performance and to increase the users’ total satisfaction. You can discover several things within an error log - the time when the error appeared, the actual path to the file which the site visitor could not access, the IP the request came from, and the reason this request couldn't be processed. There are lots of reasons for your visitors to see an error message - a link leading to a non-existent file, a script page that can't be processed in the right way by the server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so forth.
