An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Any file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information that an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, aside from the web stats which your hosting server may have produced.
