An access log is a text file which contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, graphics, and so on. All of these files shall be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a complete picture of the way your website functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often termed "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer website, is oftentimes supplied too. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your hosting server.
