An access log is a text file containing a complete list of all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All of the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you might find numerous files inside the log. This is because there are resources on the home page that are embedded - parts of other webpages, pictures, etcetera. These files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your Internet site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently termed "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, world-wide web browser and Operating System. More info, like the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes provided as well. A log file can be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your hosting server.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be very simple when you buy a cloud hosting from us. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all the accounts, has a section on different logs and that is where you'll find the access logs too. As soon as you go there, you shall see a list of all the domain names hosted in the account and the subdomains created for them. Our customized cloud hosting platform shall start producing an access log for any of them as early as you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you no longer require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be done by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can effortlessly save and manage them on your PC or laptop.
