An access log is a text file which contains a full report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find many files in the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, images, etc. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. Additional information, like the referrer website, is oftentimes included as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your server.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly simple if you acquire a cloud website hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, included with all the accounts, has a section on different logs and that is where you will find the access logs too. Once you go there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for any of them the instant you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be done by clicking on the Off button within the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our state-of-the-art hosting platform will generate access logs for each and every site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we offer with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You can disable this feature at any time by following the very same steps. You will find a Download link for every single log inside the same section of the CP, so you could save the content generated by our system in .txt format with no more than a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you will still be able to look at the data that's already been generated.
