An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular Internet site. Every single file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, 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 webpage. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the performance of an Internet site, independent of the web stats which your web hosting server may have created.
