An access log is a text file that contains an extensive list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, 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 web pages, graphics, etc. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your website works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to 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, plus the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More information, like the referrer website, is oftentimes included as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your website hosting server.
