An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Any file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the performance of a website, besides the web stats which your hosting server may have generated.
