An access log is a text file which contains a full report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find many files in the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, graphics, and so on. All these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your Internet site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer website, is oftentimes supplied as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your web server.
