An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given Internet site. Each and every file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The info that 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 write reports on the overall performance of a website, besides the web stats that your server may have generated.

If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.
