An access log is a text file which contains a complete report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pictures, and so on. All of these files will be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your website performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally 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, web browser and OS. Additional information, including the referrer site, 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 supplied by your website hosting server.
