The raw logs should be there already, being kept by the hosting company. Have a look around when you've ftp'ed into the site and you should find them somewhere. What's the site on, Windows or Apache?

Usually a shared hosting provider will already have your (their) Apache server configured to dump your logs into a directory for you as Stefan noted. Perhaps a quick call in to them will help.

Yeah, like coopster said - it's probably fastest just to give them a call or send an email to their tech support.

Does your account have "cPanel"? If so, you may be able to tick the box, under "Raw Log Manager", to have your logs archived once a day and deposited in your "logs" folder.
