An access log is a text file that contains an extensive report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens just 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 web pages, graphics, and so forth. All these files will be listed within the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your website performs. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each and every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. Additional information, such as the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes included too. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your server.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our advanced hosting platform will generate access logs for every single Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is enabled. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we supply with all the accounts, so if you need our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should just click on the small button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to disable this feature anytime by following the very same steps. You will find a Download link for every single log in the same exact section of the CP, so you could save the content produced by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the feature has been deactivated, so you'll still be able to look at the data which has already been generated.
