An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular Internet site. Any file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of a website, in addition to the web stats that your server may have produced.
