An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain site. Each and every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Sometimes you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The data an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of a website, aside from the web statistics that your web hosting server may have generated.
