An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is thorough, so in case you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically includes 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 good idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, which is also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you normally get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An illustration why you may require this type of a log is if you wish to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.
