An error log is a deposition of information which contains all the errors and warnings experienced by the visitors on your websites. Various examples of what you can find in this type of a log are: broken links that lead to non-existing files, pages which were not processed adequately by the hosting server, which resulted in an error/warning message for the site visitor, and attempts from unauthorized IP addresses to access the Internet site or its admin area. Each entry within the error log offers the exact date and time the event occurred, the visitor’s IP address, the exact directory path inside the hosting account to the website or file which had a problem and the reason for the error to appear in the first place. Inspecting an error log will permit you to discover and correct problems on your site, which will improve the overall performance of the website and the users’ experience.
