An access log is a text file that contains a thorough report on all of 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 site visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find plenty of files in the log. It is because there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, images, and so forth. These files shall be listed in the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer website, is typically included too. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your hosting server.
