An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Every single file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have a single page with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The info which an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the performance of a website, besides the web stats your server may have created.
