An access log is a text file that contains a complete list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find many files inside the log. This is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, pics, etcetera. All these files will be listed within the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your website functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently called "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. More information, including the referrer site, is typically included as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your website hosting server.
