An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally includes the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, that's also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An illustration why you may need this kind of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website statistics.
