An access log is a text file that contains an extensive list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find a lot of files inside the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, etcetera. 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 frequently described as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer site, is oftentimes supplied too. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your website hosting server.
