An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a given Internet site. Each and every file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your 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 personal computer and used to write reports on the functionality of a site, aside from the web stats that your server may have generated.
