An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain site. Every single file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The data which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It may 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 hosting server may have produced.
