An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages that visitors faced when they were surfing your website. This is the raw information that the hosting server has generated and it will help you discover potential problems with your site and handle them in a timely manner, in order to improve the site’s functionality and to raise the users’ total satisfaction. You can discover a number of things within an error log - the time when the error showed up, the actual path to the file the site visitor couldn't access, the IP address 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 leading to a non-existent file, a script site that can't be processed correctly by the hosting server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, etc.
