An access log is a text file containing a complete report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find a lot of files in the log. This is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, pics, and so forth. All these files will be listed in the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your Internet site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes called "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. Additional information, such as the referrer website, is typically 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 Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be really simple if you purchase a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs which is where you will find the access logs too. As soon as you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for any of them as early as you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can effortlessly save and manage them on your PC or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will have the option to activate or deactivate the generation of access logs with no more than several mouse clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall find this feature inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access as soon as you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a click on the On button that you will see there. The feature can be triggered independently for any site regardless if it uses a domain name or a subdomain and you shall find a full list of all the hosts within that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with only a click and you may then view it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation can be deactivated by simply switching the On option to Off within the Logs section of your Control Panel.
