An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given site. Every file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have a single page 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 that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, aside from the web statistics that your web hosting server may have created.
