An access log is a text file that contains an extensive 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 if you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find numerous files in the log. This is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, etc. These files shall be listed in the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your Internet site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally referred to as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer website, is oftentimes supplied as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your web server.
