An access log includes a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your site. The log, which is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you may need such a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website stats.
