An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular Internet site. Every single file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log usually offers 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 sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the performance of an Internet site, aside from the web statistics your hosting server may have generated.
