An access log features a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your website. The list is detailed, so in case you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your site. The log, that's also commonly named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you might need this sort of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs shall be incredibly simple if you purchase a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, has a section on different logs which is where you will find the access logs as well. As you navigate there, you shall see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for any of them as soon as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be done by clicking on the Off button inside the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can conveniently save and manage them on your PC or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function may be activated via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done individually for each and every domain or subdomain that you have within your account. When you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click shall enable the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great simplicity. A Download link inside the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you could then use on your laptop or computer. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you'll still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
