An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given Internet site. Any file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have one page with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a website, besides the web statistics that your hosting server may have generated.
