An access log is a text file that contains a complete 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 when you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find many files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pictures, etc. These files shall be listed within the access log, so that you can get a complete picture of the way your site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer Internet site, is typically included too. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your server.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly simple if you purchase a cloud web hosting from us. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you shall find the access logs too. Once you go there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for any of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button inside the exact same section. All of the logs are downloadable, therefore you can easily save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our sophisticated website hosting platform shall create access logs for every single Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we supply with all of the accounts, so if you need our system to start producing logs for each of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to stop this function at any time by following the very same steps. You will find a Download link for each log within the exact same section of the CP, so you will be able to save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with only a click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you'll still be able to see the data that's already been generated.
