An access log is a text file containing a complete list of all of the files accessed by your 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 website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find numerous files in the log. It is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, and so on. All these files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your Internet site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often termed "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer Internet site, is typically supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your server.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
When you obtain a shared hosting from our company, you'll be able to choose if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You can activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each and every domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can quickly enable or disable the generation of access logs separately for every site that you have. You can save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see in the same section of the CP. The link is available even after you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature can be activated from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done independently for each and every domain or subdomain which you have within your account. Whenever 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 each of them. A single click shall enable the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great ease. A Download link within the same section will permit you to save the gathered content as a text file, that you may then use on your personal computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
