An access log is a text file containing a full list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, etcetera. All these files will be listed in the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your site performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. Additional information, like the referrer Internet site, is usually supplied too. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your web server.
