An access log is a text file containing a complete list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, graphics, etc. All of these files shall be listed within the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer site, is usually supplied as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your web server.
