An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular site. Any file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have a single page with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log usually contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The info which an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the functionality of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics that your web hosting server may have created.
