An access log is a text file which contains an extensive list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find a lot of files in the log. It is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, etc. These files shall be listed in the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your website works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer website, is usually supplied too. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your hosting server.
