An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given Internet site. Any file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The data that an access log file features 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 overall performance of a website, aside from the web statistics your web hosting server may have produced.
