An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Any file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log usually shows the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The info which an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the performance of a site, besides the web stats which your server may have produced.
