An error log is a collection of data that features all the errors and warnings encountered by the guests on your sites. Various examples of what you may find in such a log are: broken links which lead to non-existing files, pages that were not processed properly by the server, which triggered an error/warning message for the site visitor, and attempts from unauthorized IP addresses to get to the website or its administration area. Every single entry within the error log provides the exact date and time the event took place, the visitor’s IP, the particular directory path in the hosting account to the site or file that had an issue and the cause for the error to appear to begin with. Examining an error log will enable you to discover and correct problems on your website, which will give a boost to the overall performance of the website and the users’ experience.
