An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Any file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have a single page with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a website, independent of the web stats which your web hosting server may have generated.
