An access log is a text file containing a complete report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, graphics, etcetera. All of these files shall be listed in the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes described as "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. More information, like the referrer site, is typically supplied as well. 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 Website Hosting

When you acquire a website hosting from our company, you shall be able to choose if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You could enable this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can easily trigger 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'll see in the same section of the CP. The link shall be available even after you disable the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.
