An access log is a text file that contains a full report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, pictures, etc. All of these files shall be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally 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, along with the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer site, is typically provided too. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your web server.
