An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given site. Each and every file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log usually contains the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information that an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the performance of an Internet site, in addition to the web stats that your hosting server may have generated.
