An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Each and every file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have one webpage with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics which your web hosting server may have produced.
