An access log is a text file that contains an extensive list of all the files accessed by your site 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 just the home page, for example, you might find many files inside the log. This is because there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, pictures, etc. All these files will be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a full picture of the way your Internet site works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes termed "raw data" as well. 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, Internet browser and Operating System. More information, including the referrer website, is typically provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your server.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
When you get a hosting
from our company, you will be able to decide if access logs have to be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You'll be able to activate this option from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Every single domain
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 activate or deactivate the generation of access logs individually for each site that you have. You can save a log to your personal computer by clicking on the Download link that you'll see in the same section of the CP. The link shall be available even after you stop the log generation, so you will still have access to the data gathered by our system.
