An access log is a text file which contains a full list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find a lot of files in the log. This is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, graphics, and so on. All of these files shall be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer website, is oftentimes provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your server.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
If you pick one of our shared hosting plans, you will get in-depth access logs for all your Internet sites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domains and subdomains that you have added or created in the hosting account. You'll simply have to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs right away. To disable this function, you'll need to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed individually and anytime. You will find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log produced by our system, so that you can save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it through some log processing software.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than a few mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature can be enabled through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this may be done separately for each and every domain or subdomain which you have within your account. Once you log in and check out 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 each of them. One click will enable the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the created content as a text file, which you may then use on your personal computer. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
