An access log is a text file which contains a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find many files in the log. This is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, and so on. All these files shall be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your website functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" too. 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, world-wide web browser and OS. Additional information, including the referrer website, is usually provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
When you get a cloud hosting from us, you will be able to choose if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You may enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, integrated with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can quickly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every site that you have. You can save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see in the same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your Internet sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall have the option to trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs with just several clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall find this function inside the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access once you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a single click on the On button which you can see there. The feature can be enabled separately for any Internet site regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you shall find a detailed list of all the hosts inside that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with just a click and you can then view it manually or use some software on your personal computer. The log generation could be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off inside the Logs section of your CP.
