An error log is a comprehensive report of the warnings and error messages which site visitors came across whilst they were surfing your site. This is the raw data that the server has produced and it can help you find potential problems with your Internet site and fix them in a timely manner, in order to enhance the site’s efficiency and to add to the users’ total satisfaction. You can discover quite a few things within an error log - the time when the error showed up, the specific path to the file which the website visitor could not access, the IP address the request came from, and the reason why this request could not be processed. There are various reasons for your visitors to see an error message - a link that leads to a non-existent file, a script webpage that can't be processed adequately by the web server, a website access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so forth.
