An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain Internet site. Every file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data an access log file features 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 efficiency of an Internet site, besides the web statistics that your hosting server may have produced.

The link will be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data collected by our system.
