An access log is a text file which contains a full list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, graphics, and so on. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your site works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally described as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More information, including the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes provided as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your hosting server.
