An access log is a text file containing a thorough 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 if you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find many files inside the log. This is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, pics, and so on. These files will be listed within the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your Internet site performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More info, like the referrer site, is sometimes provided as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your website hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
When you pick one of our cloud web hosting packages, you'll get comprehensive access logs for all of your Internet sites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a complete list of the domains and subdomains that you have added or created inside the web hosting account. You'll simply have to click on the On button, which is located on the right-hand side of each and every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs right away. To stop this feature, you'll need to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled individually and whenever you want. You'll find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log generated by our system, so you can save the file to your computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function may be activated via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this may be done independently for each domain or subdomain you have in your account. As soon as you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. One click shall enable the log generation and a second one will disable it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the gathered content as a text file, which you can then use on your computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
