An access log is a text file containing a complete report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files in the log. It is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, etc. All these files will be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer website, is typically supplied as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your website hosting server.
