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 which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find a lot of files inside the log. This is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, pictures, and so on. All of these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your Internet site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes referred to as "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More information, including the referrer website, is usually provided too. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your website hosting server.
