An access log is a text file which contains 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 shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, graphics, and so on. These files shall be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your website functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes termed "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer site, is sometimes included too. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
If you buy a cloud hosting from our company, you'll be able to choose if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You'll be able to enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can quickly enable or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every website that you have. You may save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see inside the same section of the CP. The link will be available even after you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our sophisticated hosting platform will create access logs for each website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we offer with all the accounts, so if you would like our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You may deactivate this feature at any time by following exactly the same steps. You can find a Download link for each log in the exact same section of the Control Panel, so you can save the content generated by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you will still be able to check out the data which has already been generated.
