An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given Internet site. Any file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics that your server may have produced.
