An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given site. Any file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have one webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the overall performance of a site, aside from the web statistics your hosting server may have generated.
