An error log is a deposition of information that features all the errors and warnings experienced by the readers on your Internet sites. Various examples of what you could find in this kind of a log are: broken links which lead to non-existing files, pages which were not processed in the correct way by the server, which triggered an error/warning message for the visitor, and attempts from unauthorized IP addresses to access the site or its administration area. Every single entry in the error log offers the exact time and date the event took place, the visitor’s IP, the exact directory path within the hosting account to the web page or file which had a difficulty and the root cause for the error to appear in the first place. Checking out an error log will enable you to identify and resolve issues on your Internet site, which can enhance the efficiency of the website and the users’ experience.
