An access log contains a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is thorough, so when you have a page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the hottest files on your site. The log, which is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you might need such a log is if you want to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.
