An access log is a text file containing 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 if you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, and so on. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently described as "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More info, including the referrer website, is typically included too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your website hosting server.
