An access log is a text file that contains an extensive report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files inside the log. This is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, etcetera. These files shall be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently described as "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer Internet site, is usually provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your website hosting server.
