An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Any file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info an access log file includes 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 efficiency of a website, aside from the web stats which your hosting server may have produced.
