An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Every file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, besides the web stats which your web hosting server may have produced.
