An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Each and every file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the performance of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics your hosting server may have created.
