An access log is a text file that contains an extensive list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find many files inside the log. This is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, graphics, and so forth. These files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your Internet site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "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, browser and OS. Additional information, including the referrer website, is typically supplied as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your hosting server.
