An access log is a text file which contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your site 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 site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files inside the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, and so on. All these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your site performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often called "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More information, such as the referrer Internet site, is usually provided as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your server.
