An access log contains a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your site. The log, which is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An illustration why you could need such a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.
