An access log is a text file that contains a full report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find many files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, etc. All of these files will be listed within the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your Internet site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, browser and OS. Additional information, including the referrer website, is sometimes supplied too. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your server.
