An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given site. Any file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have one page with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the performance of a site, aside from the web statistics that your web hosting server may have created.
