An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the guests of a particular website. Each and every file that was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have just one page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log typically shows the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your website. The information an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to write reports on the efficiency of a site, independent of the web stats that your server may have produced.
