An access log is a text file containing an extensive list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find a lot of files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pictures, etcetera. These files will be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your website works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" as well. 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, browser and OS. Additional information, including the referrer Internet site, is typically included as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your web server.
