An access log is a text file that contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files in the log. It is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, and so forth. All of these files will be listed in the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your site functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often called "raw data" as well. An access log provides 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. Additional information, including the referrer website, is usually supplied too. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your website hosting server.
