An access log is a text file containing a complete report on all of 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 app and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find many files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, and so forth. All these files will be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your website works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often termed "raw data" too. 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 Operating System. More information, including the referrer site, is usually supplied as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your server.
