An access log is a text file which contains a complete list of all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find many files inside the log. This is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, etc. All these files shall be listed in the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your website performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often called "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer website, is typically supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your hosting server.
