An access log is a text file containing an extensive 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 visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find numerous files in the log. This is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, and so on. These files shall be listed in the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your website works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes termed "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer site, is sometimes provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your web server.
