An access log is a text file which contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find many files in the log. This is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, etc. These files shall be listed in the access log, so that you can get a complete picture of the way your website functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally 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, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More information, including the referrer 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 statistics provided by your web server.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
When you order a web hosting from us, you will be able to determine if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You'll be able to enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can conveniently trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for every single site that you have. You may save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data gathered by our system.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our leading-edge web hosting platform shall create access logs for every single site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, as long as this function is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we supply with all of the accounts, so if you would like our system to start creating logs for each of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You could stop this function whenever you want by following the very same steps. You will find a Download link for each and every log within the very same section of the Control Panel, so you may save the content produced by our system in .txt format with just a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to see the data that's already been generated.
