An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Every file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have just one page 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 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info which 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 prepare reports on the functionality of a website, besides the web statistics that your web hosting server may have produced.
