An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Any file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have one page with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the functionality of a site, independent of the web stats your server may have generated.
