An access log is a text file containing a complete list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find a lot of files in the log. It is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, and so forth. All these files shall be listed in the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More information, including the referrer website, is usually supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your hosting server.
