An error log is a deposition of information that contains all of the errors and warnings experienced by the readers on your websites. Several examples of what you may find in this type of a log are: broken links which lead to non-existing files, pages that were not processed properly by the hosting server, which caused an error/warning message for the visitor, and attempts from unauthorized IP addresses to reach the site or its administrator area. Each and every entry in the error log contains the exact time and date the event occurred, the visitor’s IP address, the precise directory path in the hosting account to the web page or file which had a difficulty and the cause for the error to appear to start with. Inspecting an error log will allow you to locate and correct issues on your site, which will improve the functionality of the website and the users’ experience.
