The Statistics area presents you with a wide variety of information about your web site, from the
latest visitors to a detailed monthly summary of hits, as well as providing an error log. Use the
Statistics tools to keep track of what pages are being visited most often, and where they are
being referred from.
For more information about exactly what these web site statistics actually mean, refer to the
following excellent articles:

Raw access logs
You can download the raw access logs that contain all the recorded hit information that your
site has received. These logs are only really useful if you have a preferred reporting tool that
you prefer to use, rather than the variety of reporting tools presented in this section.
To download the raw access logs:
1. Click on the Download Raw Access Logs link in the Statistics area.
2. Save the file to disk.
Note: The access logs are in hex format.
