An access log is a complete list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Every file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for every of the six files that were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log usually provides the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your site. The information which an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a website, besides the web statistics which your web hosting server may have generated.
