An access log is a text file which contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your website 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 visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, pics, etc. All of these files shall be listed within the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your Internet site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often described as "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More information, such as the referrer website, is usually provided too. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your hosting server.
