An access log is a text file that contains a thorough list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files inside the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, and so forth. All these files will be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally described as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More info, like the referrer website, is usually included too. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your server.
