An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given Internet site. Every file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded images, 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 six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log usually contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the efficiency of a site, in addition to the web stats that your web hosting server may have generated.
