An access log is a text file that contains a complete report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find a lot of files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, and so forth. All of these files shall be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More info, including the referrer website, is oftentimes supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your website hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally simple when you purchase a web hosting from our company. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and this is where you shall find the access logs too. Once you go there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for any of them the instant 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 quick and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our advanced hosting platform will create access logs for each website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we supply with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You'll be able to deactivate this function whenever you want by following the very same steps. You'll find a Download link for every single log inside the same section of the Control Panel, so you can easily save the content generated by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you'll still be able to see the data that has already been generated.
