An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Any file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer Internet sites 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 laptop or computer and used to write reports on the functionality of a site, in addition to the web statistics which your server may have produced.
