An access log is a text file containing a full report on all the files accessed by your website 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 website visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find a lot of files inside the log. This is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, graphics, and so forth. All these files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes described as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer Internet site, is usually provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you pick one of our cloud hosting packages, you shall get in-depth access logs for your websites. As soon as you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domains and subdomains that you've added or created inside the web hosting account. You'll only need to click on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs right away. To disable this feature, you'll have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be handled separately and anytime. You'll find a download link in the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log produced by our system, so you can save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it with some log processing software.
