An access log is a text file that contains a full list of all of 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 app and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find numerous files in the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, and so on. All these files shall be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your website functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are often described as "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer Internet site, is typically included as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a cloud hosting from us, you'll be able to determine if access logs must be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You'll be able to activate this function from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can easily activate or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you shall see within the exact same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.
