An access log is a text file which contains a thorough report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find numerous files inside the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, graphics, etcetera. All these files shall be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your site functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often termed "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer Internet site, is usually included as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your web server.
