An access log is a text file containing a full list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find many files inside the log. This is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, etcetera. All these files shall be listed within the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your website performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently called "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer site, is usually included as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your web server.
