An error log is a collection of data which contains all the errors and warnings encountered by the readers on your websites. Numerous examples of what you may find in this kind of a log are: broken links that lead to non-existing files, pages that were not processed the right way by the hosting server, which caused an error/warning message for the site visitor, and attempts from unauthorized IP addresses to reach the Internet site or its administrator area. Each and every entry within the error log provides the exact date and time the event occurred, the visitor’s IP address, the precise directory path within the hosting account to the website or file which had a difficulty and the root cause for the error to appear to start with. Inspecting an error log will enable you to locate and correct issues on your website, which will enhance the efficiency of the site and the users’ experience.
