An access log is a text file containing a complete 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 website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find plenty of files inside the log. This is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, and so on. All these files shall be listed within the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your site works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often termed "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer website, is usually supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your web server.
