An access log is a text file which contains a full report on 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 app and a site visitor opens only the home page, for example, 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 Internet pages, pictures, and so on. All these files will be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your site functions. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes called "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More info, including the referrer website, is oftentimes included too. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics generated by your server.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
When you pick one of our shared hosting packages, you shall get thorough access logs for your websites. After you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a complete list of the domains and subdomains which you have added or created in the hosting account. You will only need to click on the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs immediately. To stop this function, you'll need to follow the exact same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled individually and whenever you want. You'll find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log generated by our system, allowing you to save the file to your laptop or computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.
