An access log is a text file that contains a thorough report on all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find numerous files inside the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, and so on. These files shall be listed in the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your website performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally referred to as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More info, including the referrer website, is sometimes provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your server.
