An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular Internet site. Every file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. In some cases you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data 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 overall performance of a website, in addition to the web statistics that your web hosting server may have produced.
