An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain Internet site. Every file which was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have only one webpage with three embedded images, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log shall contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the six files which were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log typically contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The information an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It could be processed by special software on a laptop or computer and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a site, aside from the web stats your hosting server may have produced.
