An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a given Internet site. Every file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have one webpage with 3 embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of a website, independent of the web stats which your web hosting server may have generated.
