An access log is a text file which 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 will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find a lot of files in the log. This is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, etc. All these files will be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer site, is oftentimes supplied too. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your server.
