An access log features a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is detailed, so in case you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log typically features the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your site. The log, that is also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics that you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you may need this type of a log is if you would like to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website stats.
