An access log is a text file which contains a thorough list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files inside the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, etc. All these files will be listed in the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your website functions. The information 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, in addition to the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More information, including the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes provided as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your web server.
