An access log is a text file which contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find many files in the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, and so on. All these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often termed "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More information, like the referrer website, is oftentimes supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your web server.
