An access log is a text file containing a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, etcetera. These files shall be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your Internet site performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently described as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer website, is sometimes provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your website hosting server.
