An access log is a text file containing an extensive list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files inside the log. It is because there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, and so forth. All these files shall be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your Internet site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" as well. 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, browser and Operating System. More information, including the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your server.
