An access log is a text file containing a thorough report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, and so forth. All these files shall be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. More information, including the referrer Internet site, is typically provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be very simple if you purchase a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia website 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. Once you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for any of them the instant you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button within the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than a few mouse clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function may be enabled from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for every single domain or subdomain you have within your account. As soon as you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. One click will trigger the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great ease. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the generated content as a text file, which you could then use on your laptop or computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
