An access log is a text file which contains a thorough list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find numerous files in the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, etcetera. These files will be listed in the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your website functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer site, is oftentimes included too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your web server.
