An access log is a text file that contains an extensive 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 app and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find a lot of files inside the log. This is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, etcetera. These files will be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently called "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, like the referrer website, is oftentimes supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your hosting server.
