An access log is a text file which contains a full list of all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, pics, etcetera. All of these files shall be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your Internet site works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often called "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer website, is oftentimes provided as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your hosting server.
