An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Every file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log usually offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the overall performance of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics your web hosting server may have produced.
