An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Every single file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The data an access log file provides 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 performance of an Internet site, aside from the web statistics your server may have created.
