An access log is a text file that contains an extensive report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files which 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 instance, you might find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, etcetera. These files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally described as "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More information, including the referrer site, is oftentimes provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your website hosting server.
