An access log is a text file which contains an extensive list of all 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 application and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files inside the log. It is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, graphics, and so on. All these files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your Internet site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More information, like the referrer Internet site, is sometimes provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your server.
