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