An access log is a text file containing a complete list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you might find numerous files inside the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, and so on. These files will be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your website functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently 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, in addition to the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More information, like the referrer Internet 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 provided by your website hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
If you order a hosting from us, you will be able to decide if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You may enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Any domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can effortlessly activate or disable the generation of access logs independently for every site that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see inside the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link is available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than several clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature can be activated from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for each domain or subdomain that you have in your account. After you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click will trigger the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great ease. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the generated content as a text file, that you could then use on your computer system. Even if the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
