An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given site. Any file that was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have one webpage with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information 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 prepare reports on the efficiency of a site, besides the web statistics your server may have created.
