An access log is a text file that contains a full report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find many files in the log. It is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, etcetera. All these files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your website functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often termed "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. More information, including the referrer Internet site, is usually supplied as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your web server.
