An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given Internet site. Every file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have one page with 3 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 which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information that an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the performance of an Internet site, besides the web stats your hosting server may have generated.
