An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given website. Every single file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have one webpage with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, aside from the web statistics your hosting server may have produced.
