An access log is a text file which contains a full list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find many files inside the log. This is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, and so on. These files will be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, web browser and Operating System. More info, including the referrer website, is sometimes supplied as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your website hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our advanced hosting platform will generate access logs for any website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, provided that this function is permitted. All domains and subdomains that you have will be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we supply with all of the accounts, so if you want our system to start generating logs for each of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You could deactivate this function anytime by following the exact same steps. You will find a Download link for every single log inside the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you will be able to save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with just a click. An existing log file may be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you'll still be able to see the data that has already been generated.
