An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular site. Every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single page with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the overall performance of a website, in addition to the web stats that your web hosting server may have created.
