An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain Internet site. Every single file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information 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 efficiency of a site, aside from the web statistics which your web hosting server may have produced.
