An access log is a text file that contains a full list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pictures, and so forth. All these files shall be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently called "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More information, like the referrer site, is usually supplied too. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your website hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
If you acquire a cloud hosting from our company, you'll be able to determine if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this must be done. You can activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, integrated with all shared accounts. Each 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 effortlessly activate or disable the generation of access logs individually for every site that you have. You could save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the same exact section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you stop the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data collected by our system.
