An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Each and every file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The data that an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the functionality of a site, aside from the web stats that your server may have produced.
