An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular Internet site. Each and every file that was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three 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 six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information an access log file features 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 performance of an Internet site, besides the web stats which your server may have produced.
