An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a particular site. Any file that was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have one page with three embedded graphics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for each of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the webpage. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The data an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the functionality of a site, independent of the web stats that your hosting server may have produced.
