An access log is a text file that contains a thorough report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find a lot 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, etcetera. These files shall be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your website works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently 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, as well as the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More information, including the referrer website, is usually supplied as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your server.
Access Log Manager in Shared Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be very easy when you acquire a shared web hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs too. As soon as you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them as early as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our state-of-the-art web hosting platform shall create access logs for any Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we offer with all of the accounts, so if you would like our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to stop this feature anytime by following the same steps. You can find a Download link for each and every log within the very same section of the CP, so you could save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with simply a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to see the data which has already been generated.
