An access log is a text file which contains a full report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files in the log. This is because there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, and so forth. All of these files will be listed in the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your Internet site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes referred to as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More info, including the referrer Internet site, is usually provided as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your server.
