An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the guests of a certain Internet site.

A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, in addition to the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. In some cases you could also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The info an access log file contains is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a personal computer and used to write reports on the functionality of an Internet site, aside from the web stats which your hosting server may have created.
