An access log is a text file containing a full list of all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files inside the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, pics, etcetera. These files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More information, like the referrer site, is sometimes included too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your server.

Access Log Manager in Web Hosting

When you get a web hosting from us, you shall be able to decide if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You can activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Any domain name 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 effortlessly enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for every 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 exact same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than a few mouse clicks to enable the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature could be enabled from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for every single domain name or subdomain which you have in your account. As soon as you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click will activate the log generation and another one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great convenience. A Download link in the same section will enable you to save the created content as a text file, that you can then use on your notebook or computer. Even if the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
