An access log is a text file that contains a complete report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files in the log. This is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, etcetera. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your website performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes included too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your server.
