An access log is a complete list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain website. Any file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have one page with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you may also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information that an access log file contains 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 overall performance of a site, in addition to the web statistics which your web hosting server may have generated.
