An access log is a text file which contains a full report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find numerous files in the log. The reason is that there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, and so on. All these files will be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More information, like the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your website hosting server.
