An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain website. Every file which was requested for some reason shall be listed, so if you have one webpage with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The info an access log file provides is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to write reports on the functionality of a website, independent of the web stats that your web hosting server may have produced.
