An access log is a text file containing an extensive list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files inside the log. It is because there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, graphics, and so on. These files will be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your website functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer site, is usually included as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your hosting server.
