An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Any file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have a single page with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the site 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. Occasionally you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The info an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the performance of an Internet site, besides the web stats your hosting server may have produced.
