An access log is a text file which contains a full list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files in the log. It is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, and so on. All of these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. More info, including the referrer site, is sometimes included as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your web server.
