An access log is a text file that contains a complete report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, images, and so forth. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a full picture of the way your website performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" too. An access log contains 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, including the referrer website, is typically provided too. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a cloud hosting from us, you'll be able to determine if access logs have to be generated and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You'll be able to activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, incorporated with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can quickly enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for every site that you have. You may save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the same exact section of the CP. 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.
