An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain site. Every file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a website, aside from the web stats that your server may have generated.

You could save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see within the same exact section of the CP. The link shall be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.
