An error log is an accumulation of information which contains all the errors and warnings encountered by the visitors on your Internet sites. Various examples of what you can find in this sort of a log are: broken links which lead to non-existing files, pages which were not processed the right way by the server, which caused an error/warning message for the website visitor, and attempts from unauthorized IP addresses to reach the website or its administration area. Every entry within the error log contains the exact time and date the event took place, the visitor’s IP, the exact directory path within the hosting account to the website or file which had a problem and the root cause for the error to appear to begin with. Analyzing an error log will allow you to discover and resolve issues on your site, which can enhance the functionality of the site and the users’ experience.
