An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain Internet site. Each and every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info which an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a website, in addition to the web stats which your web hosting server may have generated.
