An access log is a text file containing a complete list of 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 program and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find many files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, and so on. These files shall be listed within the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often called "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer Internet site, is usually provided as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your website hosting server.
