An access log is a text file which contains a complete report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find plenty of files in the log. This is because there are things on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, graphics, and so forth. These files will be listed within the access log, so you're able to get a complete picture of the way your website functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "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, and also the user’s IP address, Internet browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer Internet site, is usually provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your web server.

Access Log Manager in Hosting

The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all of the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you will find the access logs too. Once you navigate there, you'll see a list of all the domains hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them.

All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop computer or laptop.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our advanced website hosting platform shall create access logs for any website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is activated. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, that we supply with all of the accounts, so if you need our system to start producing logs for any of them, you should just click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On.

You'll find a Download link for every single log inside the same section of the Control Panel, so you will be able to save the content produced by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the feature has been disabled, so you will still be able to check out the data that's already been generated.
