An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Each and every file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The data which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a site, in addition to the web stats your server may have generated.
