An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain Internet site. Any file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have just one webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the performance of an Internet site, besides the web stats that your server may have created.
