An access log is a text file that contains a full list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All of 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 may find numerous files inside the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, graphics, etc. All of these files will be listed inside the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your Internet site functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer site, is oftentimes supplied as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your server.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be incredibly simple when you get a shared website hosting
from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you'll find the access logs too. When you go there, you'll see a list of all the domain names
hosted inside the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for any of them the instant you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as fast and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, which means that you can effortlessly save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.
