An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Each and every file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information an access log file includes 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 efficiency of a website, besides the web statistics which your web hosting server may have created.
