An access log is a text file that contains an extensive report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files in the log. It is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, pics, and so forth. All these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes called "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer Internet site, is sometimes included as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your hosting server.
