An access log is a text file that contains an extensive list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All 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 just the home page, for instance, you may find a lot of files inside the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, and so on. These files will be listed within the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your Internet site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More information, such as the referrer site, is sometimes supplied too. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your server.
