An access log is a text file containing a full report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, and so on. All these files shall be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes termed "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More info, such as the referrer Internet site, is usually provided too. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your website hosting server.
