An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Every single file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the efficiency of a website, besides the web stats that your hosting server may have produced.
