An access log is a text file containing an extensive list of all the files accessed by your site 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 website visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find many files in the log. It is because there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, images, etcetera. These files shall be listed inside the access log, so that you can get a complete picture of the way your site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally called "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each 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. Additional information, like the referrer site, is typically supplied too. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

When you choose one of our cloud hosting solutions, you will get thorough access logs for your websites. After you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can go to the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a thorough list of the domains and subdomains which you have added or created in the web hosting account. You'll only need to click on the On button, which is situated on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs at once. To stop this feature, you'll have to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed independently and whenever you want. You'll find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log generated by our system, so you can save the file to your computer and view it or use it via some log processing software.

Once you log in and go to the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you'll find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. A single click will trigger the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great efficiency. A Download link within the same section will allow you to save the created content as a text file, that you can then use on your laptop or computer. Even if the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
