An access log is a text file containing a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find many files in the log. It is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, and so on. These files will be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes referred to as "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer Internet site, is sometimes provided as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your website hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
Our custom Hepsia Control Panel has a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. As you sign in to your cloud hosting account and navigate to this section, you shall find a list of all the domain names and subdomains which you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to click on a button that'll be available next to each and every domain/subdomain. When the option is enabled, you shall see a download link along with the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your PC and view it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective immediately, so if you don't need one, you may stop it with just a click from the very same section of the CP. You'll still be able to access the already generated content by simply clicking on the Download link.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our leading-edge hosting platform shall create access logs for every Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this function is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we offer with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You could disable this function anytime by following the exact same steps. You can find a Download link for each log inside the exact same section of the CP, so you may save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with no more than a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you'll still be able to check out the data that has already been generated.
