An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Any file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have one page with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for each of the 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The data that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a website, aside from the web statistics which your web hosting server may have produced.
