An access log is a text file that contains a full report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, graphics, and so on. All of these files shall be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your site performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently described as "raw data" as well. 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, world-wide web browser and OS. More info, including the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes provided as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your server.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be extremely simple if you buy a website hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you shall find the access logs as well. As you navigate there, you will see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button inside the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your PC or notebook.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it shall not take more than a couple of clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function may be permitted through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this can be done separately for each and every domain name or subdomain which you have inside your account. Whenever you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click will activate the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great comfort. A Download link within the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you can then use on your PC. Even when the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
