An access log is a text file which contains an extensive list of all the files accessed by your Internet 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 instance, you may find many files in the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, images, etcetera. All of these files will be listed in the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your website works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently described as "raw data" too. An access log provides 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 Operating System. More information, including the referrer Internet site, is usually included too. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
If you obtain a hosting from us, you will be able to decide if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You'll be able to activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Any domain you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can quickly trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every single site that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see in the very same section of the CP. The link is available even if you deactivate the log generation, so you will still have access to the data collected by our system.
