An access log is a text file containing a complete report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find a lot of files in the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, etc. All these files shall be listed within the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your Internet site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More information, like the referrer Internet site, is usually provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your server.
