An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Every single file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have just one webpage with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the performance of a website, in addition to the web statistics your web hosting server may have generated.
