An access log is a text file which contains a complete list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find many files in the log. This is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, etcetera. All of these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your website hosting server.
