An access log is a text file which contains a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your 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 visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find a lot of files in the log. The reason is that there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, graphics, and so forth. These files will be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes referred to as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. Additional information, like the referrer site, is oftentimes provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your server.
