An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given website. Any file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 embedded pictures, 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 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a website, aside from the web stats your hosting server may have created.
