An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Every single file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. 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 write reports on the efficiency of a website, in addition to the web statistics that your hosting server may have produced.
