An access log is a text file that contains an extensive report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find numerous files inside the log. This is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, graphics, etcetera. These files shall be listed in the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your website performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes called "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer Internet site, is sometimes included too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your hosting server.
