An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular site. Each and every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The info that an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, in addition to the web stats your server may have produced.
