An access log is a text file that contains a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens just 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 web pages, images, etc. All these files will be listed within the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your website functions. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. Additional information, including the referrer website, is oftentimes provided too. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your web server.
Access Log Manager in Web Hosting
If you purchase a web hosting from us, you shall be able to determine if access logs should be produced and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this should be done. You may enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you'll see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can quickly enable or disable the generation of access logs individually for each website that you have. You could save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the same section of the CP. The link is available even after you disable the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
