An access log is a text file which contains a full list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find a lot of files inside the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, pictures, and so forth. All these files will be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. Additional information, such as the referrer Internet site, is sometimes supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your website hosting server.
