An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a certain Internet site. Every single file which was requested for some reason will be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data that an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the efficiency of an Internet site, besides the web stats that your server may have generated.
