An access log is a text file containing a thorough report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which 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 might find many files in the log. This is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, pictures, etc. All these files will be listed in the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your Internet site performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. More information, like the referrer site, is usually provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your website hosting server.
