An access log is a text file that contains a thorough list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files inside the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, graphics, etc. All of these files shall be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your website functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer site, is typically provided too. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your web server.
