An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given site. Every file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the overall performance of a site, aside from the web statistics that your server may have generated.
