An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Any file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the functionality of a site, aside from the web statistics which your hosting server may have created.
