An access log is a text file which contains a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, graphics, and so forth. All these files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your Internet site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes termed "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More info, such as the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes provided too. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your hosting server.
