An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Every single file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. In some cases you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, in addition to the web stats which your web hosting server may have produced.
