An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Each and every file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have one page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the performance of a website, aside from the web stats your web hosting server may have generated.
