An access log is a text file containing an extensive list of all the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find plenty of files in the log. The reason is that there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, etc. All these files will be listed within the access log, so that you can get a full picture of the way your site works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer Internet site, is usually supplied as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
When you pick one of our cloud hosting solutions, you will get detailed access logs for all your websites. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see an extensive list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created within the hosting account. You'll only have to click on the On button, that's situated on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs straight away. To disable this function, you will have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be handled separately and anytime. You'll find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log produced by our system, so you can save the file to your personal computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.
