An error log is a comprehensive report of the warnings and error messages that website visitors came across whilst they were surfing your website. This is the raw information that the server has generated and it will help you discover potential issues with your website and solve them in a timely manner, in order to enhance the site’s efficiency and to raise the users’ satisfaction. You can find quite a few things inside an error log - the time when the error occurred, the exact path to the file which the site visitor can't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason why this request couldn't be processed. There are lots of reasons for your website visitors to see an error message - a link that leads to a non-existent file, a script webpage that can't be processed properly by the server, a website access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so forth.
