An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Every single file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The information that an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the performance of a site, aside from the web stats your server may have created.
