An access log is a text file containing a thorough 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 if you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find many files in the log. The reason is that there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, and so forth. These files will be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes referred to as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer website, is oftentimes included too. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your server.
