An access log is a text file which contains a thorough list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files in the log. This is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, graphics, etcetera. All of these files will be listed within the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your Internet site works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer website, is usually provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your web server.
