An access log is a text file which contains a thorough report on 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 site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files in the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, pics, and so on. All these files will be listed in the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes termed "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More information, including the referrer website, is typically included as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your web server.
