An access log is a text file which contains a full report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find plenty of files in the log. This is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, and so forth. These files will be listed in the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer website, is usually supplied as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your hosting server.
