An access log is a text file which contains a thorough list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find plenty of files in the log. This is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, images, etc. These files shall be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your site performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently called "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. More information, including the referrer Internet site, is usually supplied as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your server.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
If you obtain a web hosting from us, you'll be able to determine if access logs have to be produced and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You could activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can effortlessly trigger or disable the generation of access logs individually for each site that you have. You may save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see inside the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our sophisticated web hosting platform shall create access logs for every Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we supply with all of the accounts, so if you need our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should simply click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could disable this function anytime by following exactly the same steps. You will find a Download link for each log inside the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you can easily save the content produced by our system in .txt format with only a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you'll still be able to check out the data which has already been generated.
