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