An access log is a text file containing a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find many files in the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, and so on. These files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your website performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often termed "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each and 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 OS. More info, including the referrer site, is typically supplied as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your hosting server.
