An access log is a text file containing a full list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find plenty of files in the log. This is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, images, etc. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your website functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer Internet site, is typically provided too. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your server.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
When you acquire a cloud hosting
from us, you shall be able to determine if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You can enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Each and every domain
you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each of them, so you can quickly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the same exact section of the CP. The link is available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you'll 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 us, it shall not take more than several clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function may be permitted through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this can be done individually for every single domain or subdomain you have inside your account. When you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click will trigger the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this function with great simplicity. A Download link within the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you can then use on your computer system. Even if the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
