An access log is a text file containing an extensive list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find a lot of files in the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pictures, etc. All these files will be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log shows 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. Additional information, like the referrer site, is oftentimes provided too. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your website hosting server.
