An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Every single file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the performance of a site, besides the web stats which your server may have created.
