An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given Internet site. Any file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log usually contains the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The data which an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the functionality of an Internet site, independent of the web statistics which your server may have created.
