An access log is a text file containing a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find plenty of files inside the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, and so on. All these files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer website, is typically supplied as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your server.
