An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically features the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your website. The log, which is also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics you normally get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you may require this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated website stats.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
Our custom Hepsia Control Panel has a section focused on various logs and the access logs are among them. When you sign in to your hosting account and go to this section, you'll find a list of all the domains and subdomains you have. All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to press a button which will be available next to each and every domain/subdomain. In case the option is enabled, you will see a download link and also the file size so far, so you will be able to save the file to your computer and look at it or process it with some program. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective immediately, so if you don't require one, you can stop it with simply a mouse click from the same exact section of the Control Panel. You will still be able to access the already generated content by clicking on the Download link.
