An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a particular website. Each and every file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three embedded images, 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 which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log typically offers the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, browser and IP address. In some cases you may also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data which an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the performance of an Internet site, aside from the web statistics which your web hosting server may have generated.
