An access log is a text file which contains a complete 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 if you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files inside the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pictures, and so on. All these files shall be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your site works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes called "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. Additional information, including the referrer website, is typically included too. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your server.
