An access log is a text file that contains a thorough list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files inside the log. This is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, and so on. These files will be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your Internet site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More information, like the referrer site, is typically provided too. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your hosting server.
