An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given site. Every file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The information which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, aside from the web statistics your hosting server may have created.
