An access log is a text file containing a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find many files in the log. This is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, and so forth. These files will be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes provided too. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your web server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs shall be exceptionally easy when you acquire a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs too. As soon as you go there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform shall start generating an access log for each of them as soon as 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 quick and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button within the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can conveniently save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall have the option to trigger or disable the generation of access logs with no more than a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting CP. You shall find this feature within the Access/Error Logs section, which you can access when you sign in. All it takes for our system to start producing logs is a click on the On button which you will see there. The feature can be enabled separately for any site regardless of whether it uses a domain or a subdomain and you will find the complete list of all the hosts in that section. Any access log can be downloaded as a text file with simply a click and you can then look at it manually or use some software on your PC. The log generation can be stopped by simply changing the On option to Off within the Logs section of your CP.
