An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Any file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, besides the web stats your server may have created.
