An access log is a text file containing a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find a lot of files in the log. This is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, and so forth. All of these files shall be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes called "raw data" as well. 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, browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer Internet site, is typically included too. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your web server.
