An access log is a text file containing an extensive report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find plenty of files inside the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, and so forth. These files will be listed within the access log, so that you can get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes called "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer site, is oftentimes provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your web server.
