Application logs contain all the information about incoming requests on your site. There are two types of application logs. They are "Access logs" and "Error logs".
Access logs collect all the information about the "successful" requests served by your server.
Error logs collect all the information about the "Failed" requests served by your server. These requests include 404 errors, 500 errors and similar other errors on the site's code.
Logs come in handy when your site is going through a technical issue. Logs allow you to identify the root cause of the errors so that you can take appropriate actions to solve the issue.
