An access log is a text file that contains an extensive report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of 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 only the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, images, etcetera. All these files will be listed in the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently called "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer site, is usually provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your website hosting server.
