An error log is an accumulation of data which contains all the errors and warnings encountered by the guests on your Internet sites. Numerous examples of what you can find in this type of a log are: broken links which lead to non-existing files, pages that were not processed properly by the web server, which triggered an error/warning message for the website visitor, and attempts from unauthorized IP addresses to get to the site or its administration area. Every entry within the error log provides the exact time and date the event occurred, the visitor’s IP address, the exact directory path in the hosting account to the site or file which had a difficulty and the root cause for the error to appear to begin with. Reviewing an error log will allow you to identify and correct issues on your website, which can boost the efficiency of the website and the users’ experience.
