An access log is a text file which contains a thorough report on all of 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 program and a visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find numerous files in the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, graphics, etcetera. These files shall be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your site performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally referred to as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer Internet site, is usually included as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your web server.
