An access log is a text file that contains a complete report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files inside the log. This is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, etcetera. These files shall be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally described as "raw data" as well. An access log provides 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 OS. Additional information, such as the referrer site, is usually supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your hosting server.
