An access log is a text file containing an extensive report on all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files inside the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, and so on. These files shall be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your Internet site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes termed "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer website, is sometimes provided as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your server.
