An access log is a text file that contains an extensive report on all 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 application and a visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find plenty of files in the log. This is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, etcetera. These files shall be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your Internet site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently called "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More info, like the referrer Internet site, is sometimes 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 hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
When you buy a cloud hosting from our company, you shall be able to decide if access logs should 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, which comes with all shared accounts. Every single domain you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can conveniently activate or deactivate the generation of access logs independently for each site that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link you'll see in the same section of the CP. The link will be available even after you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.
