An access log is a thorough list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular site. Every file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have a single page with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information that an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the performance of an Internet site, in addition to the web stats that your hosting server may have created.
