An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Every file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of a site, besides the web stats which your server may have produced.
