An access log is a text file that contains a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find plenty of files in the log. It is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, graphics, and so on. All of these files will be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often termed "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More info, including the referrer website, is sometimes included as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your web server.
