How to open your Raw Access Logs:

You will notice that these files are in a .gz format, which you won't be able to open, unless you have the correct software. We recommend that you use WinRar (which is provided by for Windows users.

Once you have this application installed, you will be able to open the file that you downloaded earlier which should look something like this: accesslog_somesortaname.com_5_10_2008.gz

Once you've opened this file, you will need to extract the file; we suggest that you extract it to the desktop. Once this has been completed, for windows users, you may want to open the file with WordPad (comes free with ever copy of windows).
