An access log is a text file that contains a thorough report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find numerous files inside the log. This is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, and so on. All these files will be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often termed "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More information, like the referrer site, is sometimes included too. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your server.
