An access log is a text file containing a complete report on all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find numerous files inside the log. This is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, etc. All these files shall be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes described as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More info, including the referrer Internet site, is usually included too. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your web server.

All it takes to enable the generation of access logs is to click on a button that'll be available next to each domain/subdomain. If the option is enabled, you shall see a download link along with the file size so far, so you shall be able to save the file to your PC and view it or process it with some program.

You will still be able to access the already developed content by simply clicking the Download link.
