Each and every file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have one webpage with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info which an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of a site, in addition to the web statistics that your hosting server may have created.
