An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain Internet site. Every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have just one webpage with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. In some cases you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The information that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of a site, in addition to the web statistics which your web hosting server may have created.
