An access log is a detailed list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain website. Each and every file which was requested in some way shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files that were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log usually contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s OS, browser and IP address. Occasionally you can also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the functionality of a site, aside from the web stats which your hosting server may have created.
