An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular Internet site. Each and every file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have one 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 any of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info which 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 write reports on the performance of a website, in addition to the web statistics which your hosting server may have produced.
