An access log is a text file that contains an extensive list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, etc. These files will be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "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 OS. Additional information, like the referrer site, is oftentimes supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your server.
