An access log is a text file that contains an extensive list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files inside the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, and so forth. All these files shall be listed in the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your website functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer site, is typically provided too. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your hosting server.
