An access log includes a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is thorough, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically features 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 popular files on your Internet site. The log, which is also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you typically get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you might need this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website stats.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel features a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. As you sign in to your cloud website hosting
account and take a look at this section, you'll find a list of all the domains
and subdomains you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to press a button which will be available next to each and every domain/subdomain. If the option is active, you shall see a download link and also the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your laptop or computer and examine it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect immediately, so if you no longer require one, you'll be able to stop it with a click from the same exact section of the CP. You shall still be able to access the already developed content by clicking on the Download link.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account with us, it will not take more than a few clicks to activate the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The function may be permitted via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this can be done individually for each and every domain or subdomain that you have within your account. After you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to all of them. A single click shall enable the log generation and another one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great ease. A Download link in the same section will allow you to save the created content as a text file, which you may then use on your computer system. Whether or not the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
