An access log is a text file which contains a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find a lot of files inside the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page that 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 full picture of the way your website functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" too. An access log contains 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 Operating System. More info, such as the referrer site, is typically supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your hosting server.
