An access log is a text file containing a full report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, etc. These files will be listed in the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your website performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently called "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More info, including the referrer website, is sometimes supplied as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your server.

The link is available even after you disable the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
