An access log is a text file which contains an extensive 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 example, you might find a lot of files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, pics, and so on. All these files will be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your site functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More information, including the referrer website, is typically supplied too. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your server.
