An access log is a text file which contains an extensive list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens only 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 webpages, pictures, etcetera. These files shall be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently described as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More information, like the referrer site, is oftentimes supplied as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your hosting server.
