An access log is a text file that contains a full list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find plenty of files in the log. This is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, etc. These files will be listed within the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More info, such as the referrer site, is oftentimes supplied as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your server.
