An access log is a text file which contains a full report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files in the log. It is because there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, graphics, etc. These files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes called "raw data" as well. 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, web browser and Operating System. More info, including the referrer website, is oftentimes provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your web server.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
If you choose one of our website hosting plans, you will receive comprehensive access logs for your sites. When you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a full list of the domains and subdomains you have added or created within the web hosting account. You'll only need to click on the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs immediately. To stop this feature, you will have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled separately and anytime. You'll find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for every log created by our system, so you're able to save the file to your computer system and view it or use it with some log processing software.
