An access log is a text file that contains a thorough list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when 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. It is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, pics, etcetera. All these files will be listed within the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your website works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally referred to as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer site, is oftentimes provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your web server.
