An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given website. Any file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have one page with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Occasionally you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your site. The data which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to prepare reports on the efficiency of a website, aside from the web stats which your web hosting server may have created.
