An access log includes a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually features the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your website. The log, which is also often referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you typically get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An illustration why you may require this kind of a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.

You can save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the exact same section of the CP. The link shall be available even after you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data compiled by our system.
