An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given website. Every file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the performance of an Internet site, aside from the web stats your hosting server may have generated.
