An access log is a text file that contains a complete list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. This is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, and so forth. All these files will be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. More information, like the referrer website, is typically included as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics provided by your server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the generation of access logs will be very simple if you buy a cloud hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs as well. Once you navigate there, you shall 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 each of them when you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you no longer need logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can comfortably save and manage them on your desktop PC or notebook.

You'll be able to stop this function at any time by following the very same steps. You'll find a Download link for each log within the same section of the Control Panel, so you could save the content generated by our system in .txt format with just a mouse click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the feature has been disabled, so you will still be able to look at the data that has already been generated.
