Each and every file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The info which an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the performance of a site, independent of the web statistics that your server may have generated.
