An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is thorough, so if you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your site. The log, which is also commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you might need this sort of a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.
