An access log is a text file which contains a thorough 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 program and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find numerous files in the log. This is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, graphics, and so forth. All of these files shall be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes termed "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. More information, like the referrer Internet site, is sometimes supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your web server.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be exceptionally easy if you purchase a shared website hosting
from our company. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, features a section on different logs and this is where you'll find the access logs too. As soon as 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 each of them as early as you click on the On button, which 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 inside the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop computer or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our sophisticated web hosting platform shall generate access logs for any website hosted in a semi-dedicated server
account, provided that this feature is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we offer with all of the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You may stop this feature anytime by following exactly the same steps. You will find a Download link for each log within the exact same section of the Control Panel, so you can easily save the content produced by our system in .txt format with simply 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 which has already been generated.
