An access log is a text file which contains a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, and so forth. All these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your Internet site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often called "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. More information, like the referrer website, is typically supplied as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your server.
