An access log contains a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is detailed, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically contains the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, that is also commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you may need this sort of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.
