An access log is a text file containing a full report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find numerous files inside the log. This is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, etcetera. These files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes termed "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More info, including the referrer website, is oftentimes supplied too. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your website hosting server.
