An access log contains a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is detailed, so in case you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, which is also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An illustration why you might need such a log is if you want to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
Our custom Hepsia CP features a section focused on various logs and the access logs are one of them. As soon as you sign in to your hosting account and take a look at this section, you will find a list of all the domain names and subdomains you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to click on a button that will be available next to every single domain/subdomain. If the option is active, you'll see a download link as well as the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your personal computer and look at it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective instantly, so if you no longer need one, you'll be able to stop it with just a mouse click from the very same section of the Control Panel. You'll still have the ability to access the already generated content by simply clicking on the Download link.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our sophisticated website hosting platform will create access logs for any website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is activated. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed inside the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, that we supply with all the accounts, so if you would like our system to start generating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the compact button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You could disable this function anytime by following the same steps. You'll find a Download link for every single log in the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you can easily save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with only a mouse click. An existing log file could be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you'll still be able to look at the data that has already been generated.
