An access log is a text file containing an extensive list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find many files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, etc. All of these files shall be listed in the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your Internet site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer site, is sometimes provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your website hosting server.
