An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a given Internet site. Each and every file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have a single page with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of 6 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, along with the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info which an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the performance of a site, besides the web stats that your server may have generated.
