An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Every file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics which your web hosting server may have generated.
