An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain site. Any file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have only one page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, web browser and IP address. In some cases you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your site. The data 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 functionality of an Internet site, aside from the web statistics that your hosting server may have generated.
