An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a given Internet site. Any file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have one page with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log normally shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The information which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the functionality of a site, independent of the web stats which your web hosting server may have created.
