An access log is a text file that contains an extensive report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find many files inside the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, graphics, and so on. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your website performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. Additional information, like the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes included too. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your hosting server.
