An access log is a text file which contains a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, etc. All these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your Internet site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes described as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More info, like the referrer Internet site, is usually supplied as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your web server.
