An access log is a text file which contains a full report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files in the log. It is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, graphics, and so forth. All of these files shall be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your website functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes referred to as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. More info, including the referrer Internet site, is typically included as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

When you buy a hosting from our company, you will be able to determine if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You can activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Every domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can quickly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for each site that you have. You can save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you'll see within the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link will be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data collected 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 a couple of clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function can be permitted through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this may be done independently for each and every domain or subdomain you have inside your account. Once you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click will activate the log generation and a second one will disable it, so you can control this function with great ease. A Download link in the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you may then use on your notebook or computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
