An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given website. Every single file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have only one page with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for each of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of a website, besides the web statistics your web hosting server may have generated.
