An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given site. Any file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have one webpage with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the performance of a site, independent of the web stats which your server may have produced.
