An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain site. Each and every file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have one webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The info an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of a site, besides the web stats that your hosting server may have generated.
