An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given website. Each and every file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a website, independent of the web stats your hosting server may have produced.
