An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given site. Any file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The information that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics which your web hosting server may have generated.
