An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given site. Any file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the performance of a website, besides the web stats that your web hosting server may have produced.
