An access log is a text file which contains a complete list of all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, pics, etcetera. These files shall be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often called "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer site, is oftentimes provided as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your server.
