An access log is a text file containing an extensive report on all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script app and a visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find many files inside the log. This is because there are components on the home page which are embedded - parts of other webpages, images, and so forth. All these files shall be listed in the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your website works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently called "raw data" as well. 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, Internet browser and Operating System. Additional information, like the referrer site, is usually supplied too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your website hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be really simple when you get a shared hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all of the accounts, has a section dedicated to different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs as well. As you go there, you will see a list of all the domains hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform will start generating an access log for each of them when you click on the On button, which you'll see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can easily save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

You could deactivate this feature anytime by following the very same steps. You'll find a Download link for every single log within the same section of the Control Panel, so you can easily save the content generated by our system in .txt format with just a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the function has been deactivated, so you will still be able to view the data which has already been generated.
