An access log is a text file which contains a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find many files inside the log. This is because there are resources 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 works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often termed "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, browser and OS. More information, such as the referrer website, is sometimes provided too. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your website hosting server.

You'll simply need to click on the On button, that's found on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs immediately. To disable this feature, you will have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled individually and whenever you want. You'll find a download link within the Logs section of the CP for any log produced by our system, so you can save the file to your computer system and view it or use it via some log processing software.

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 clicks to trigger the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function may be permitted from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this may be done independently for each and every domain name or subdomain that you have in your account. Whenever you log in and go to 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 all of them. One click shall enable the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link inside the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you could then use on your computer. Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
