An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given site. Every file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log usually provides 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 site. The info which an access log file includes 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 performance of a site, besides the web statistics that your server may have created.
