An access log is a text file that contains a full list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files in the log. It is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, pics, etc. These files will be listed in the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your website works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes described as "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More information, like the referrer website, is sometimes included as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your server.
