An access log is a text file containing a full report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find many files inside the log. It is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, etc. All these files will be listed within the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your website works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently described as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More information, like the referrer Internet site, is usually supplied too. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your server.
