An access log is a text file that contains a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find many files inside the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, images, and so on. These files shall be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your Internet site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes termed "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer Internet site, 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 supplied by your server.
