An access log is a text file that contains an extensive list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, and so on. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes referred to as "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, along with the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More info, such as the referrer website, is usually supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your server.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
Our custom Hepsia Control Panel includes a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. As soon as you sign in to your cloud website hosting
account and visit this section, you'll find a list of all the domains and subdomains that you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to press a button that'll be available next to every domain/subdomain. If the option is active, you'll see a download link as well as the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your PC and examine it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect right away, so if you no longer require one, you could stop it with simply a click from the same exact section of the CP. You shall still have the ability to access the already developed content by clicking on the Download link.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, it won't take more than a few clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function can be enabled from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this may be done individually for every single domain or subdomain that you have within your account. Once you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. One click shall enable the log generation and another one will disable it, so you can control this feature with great ease. A Download link in the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you may then use on your laptop or computer. Even if the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
