An access log is a text file that contains a complete list of all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, pictures, etc. All of these files shall be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your site works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often termed "raw data" too. An access log shows the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More information, like the referrer website, is usually included as well. A log file could be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your web server.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
When you order a shared hosting from our company, you will be able to choose if access logs should be generated and for which domains or subdomains inside your account this must be done. You can activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Every single domain name you host or subdomain you set up will be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can easily enable or disable the generation of access logs separately for every website that you have. You can save a log to your computer by clicking on the Download link that you will see within the very same section of the Control Panel. The link is available even after you deactivate the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data gathered by our system.
