An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Each and every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the overall performance of a site, besides the web statistics which your server may have generated.
