An access log includes a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is detailed, so when 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 contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your site. The log, which is also commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you might need this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website stats.
