An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given Internet site. Every single file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. In some cases you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The data that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the functionality of an Internet site, in addition to the web statistics that your server may have produced.
