An access log is a text file which contains a thorough report on all 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 website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find plenty of files inside the log. This is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, pics, etc. All these files will be listed within 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 occasionally called "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More info, including the referrer website, is typically supplied too. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your hosting server.
