An access log is a text file containing a full list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find plenty of files in the log. It is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, etc. All of these files will be listed in the access log, so that you can get a complete picture of the way your website performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes referred to as "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More information, like the referrer website, is typically included too. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your website hosting server.
