An access log is a text file which contains an extensive list of 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 application and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find numerous files inside the log. This is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, images, and so forth. All these files shall be listed within the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer Internet site, is typically provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your server.
