An access log is a text file containing a thorough list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find numerous files in the log. This is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, graphics, etcetera. All these files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your site functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More information, including the referrer Internet site, is sometimes supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your website hosting server.
