An access log is a text file containing a thorough list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find many files inside the log. This is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, and so on. All of these files will be listed within the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your Internet site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More information, like the referrer Internet site, is sometimes included as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting from us, you'll be able to choose if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You can activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Any domain you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can easily activate or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every website that you have. You may save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see in the same exact section of the CP. The link will be available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it shall not take more than a couple of clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature may be activated from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this can be done separately for every single domain or subdomain which you have inside your account. After you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to every one of them. A single click will enable the log generation and another one shall deactivate it, so you can control this function with great efficiency. A Download link in the same section will enable you to save the generated content as a text file, that you may then use on your laptop or computer. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
