An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Each and every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have one webpage 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 each of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information that an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, besides the web statistics which your web hosting server may have generated.
