An access log is a detailed list of all the files that were accessed by the visitors of a particular site. Any file which was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have a single page with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an illustration, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for every of the 6 files which were accessed when the website visitor opened the page. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, worldwide web browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a site, in addition to the web stats your web hosting server may have produced.
