An access log is a text file that contains a complete report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, graphics, and so on. These files will be listed within the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More information, such as the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your web server.
