An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given website. Any file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have one webpage with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The info that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a website, aside from the web stats that your web hosting server may have produced.
