An access log is a text file containing a full list of all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, etcetera. All these files shall be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer website, is typically supplied as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Our custom-built Hepsia CP includes a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. Once you sign in to your cloud hosting account and take a look at this section, you shall find a list of all the domain names and subdomains you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to press a button that'll be available next to each and every domain/subdomain. If the option is enabled, you will see a download link together with the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your computer and examine it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective immediately, so if you don't require one, you can stop it with just a mouse click from the exact same section of the CP. You'll still have the ability to access the already created content by simply clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function can be enabled via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this may be done independently for each domain name or subdomain that you have in your account. As soon as you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click shall enable the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great ease. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the gathered content as a text file, which you could then use on your notebook or computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
