An access log is a text file that contains an extensive report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files inside the log. It is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, graphics, etcetera. These files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your website works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally described as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More info, including the referrer Internet site, is usually supplied too. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your website hosting server.
