An access log is a text file containing a complete report on all the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, pics, etcetera. All these files will be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes 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, Internet browser and Operating System. More information, like the referrer site, is typically included as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel features a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. When you sign in to your cloud hosting account and navigate to this section, you will find a list of all the domains and subdomains you have. All it takes to enable the generation of access logs is to press a button that'll be available next to every domain/subdomain. When the option is enabled, you will see a download link along with the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your computer and look at it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective right away, so if you don't require one, you'll be able to stop it with just a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel. You'll still be able to access the already created content by simply clicking the Download link.

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it shall not take more than several clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The feature can be activated from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each and every domain or subdomain that you have within your account. Once you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click will enable the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great efficiency. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the generated content as a text file, which you can then use on your notebook or computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
