An access log is a text file that contains a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files inside the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, etc. These files shall be listed within the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your Internet site functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to 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, and also the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer Internet site, is usually provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your hosting server.
