An access log is a text file that contains a thorough list of all the files accessed by your site visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, etcetera. All these files will be listed in the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your website performs. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally referred to as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, plus the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes included too. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
When you get a website hosting
from our company, you will be able to decide if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You'll be able to activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, included with all shared accounts. Every single domain name
you host or subdomain you create will be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to every one of them, so you can quickly activate or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for every single website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see within the very same section of the Control Panel. The link shall be available even if you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data compiled by our system.
