Every file that was requested in some way will be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded pictures, one video and one embedded text file, for example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log typically provides the file name and path, the date, plus the visitor’s Operating System, web browser and IP address. Sometimes you may also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The info that an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It can be processed by special software on a PC and used to write reports on the functionality of a site, independent of the web statistics which your hosting server may have produced.
