An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Every file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have a single page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info that an access log file contains 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, in addition to the web statistics that your hosting server may have produced.
