An access log is a text file that contains a thorough report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files inside the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, etc. All these files shall be listed in the access log, so that you can get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently called "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More information, including the referrer website, is sometimes supplied as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your server.
