An access log is a text file that contains a full report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find numerous files inside the log. This is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, and so on. All these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your website works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" too. An access log provides 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 OS. More info, including the referrer Internet site, is sometimes provided too. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your website hosting server.
