An access log is a text file which contains an extensive report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find many files inside the log. This is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pictures, and so forth. All these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your Internet site functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often termed "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. Additional information, such as the referrer site, is usually supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia CP includes a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. As you sign in to your shared hosting account and go to this section, you will find a list of all the domain names and subdomains you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to click on a button that'll be available next to every domain/subdomain. In case the option is enabled, you will see a download link as well as the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your laptop or computer and look at it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective instantaneously, so if you no longer need one, you may stop it with a click from the same exact section of the CP. You shall still be able to access the already generated content by simply clicking on the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our leading-edge website hosting platform shall create access logs for every Internet site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we supply with all the accounts, so if you want our system to start producing logs for any of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You may deactivate this feature whenever you want by following the very same steps. You can find a Download link for every single log inside the very same section of the Control Panel, so you could save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with just a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the option has been deactivated, so you will still be able to see the data that has already been generated.
