An access log is a text file that contains an extensive report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find numerous files in the log. This is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, etcetera. All these files shall be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "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, Internet browser and Operating System. Additional information, such as the referrer website, is oftentimes included as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your website hosting server.
