An access log is a text file that contains a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which 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 pages, images, etcetera. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a detailed 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 each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer website, is typically included as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your website hosting server.
