An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain site. Each and every file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info which an access log file includes 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 a site, besides the web stats which your server may have generated.
