An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is thorough, so in case you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes the date, the Operating System, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that's also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you may need this sort of a log is if you want to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.
Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
Our custom Hepsia Control Panel features a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. Once you sign in to your cloud website hosting account and go to this section, you shall find a list of all the domain names and subdomains you have. All it takes to enable the generation of access logs is to click on a button that'll be available next to every domain/subdomain. In case the option is enabled, you shall see a download link together with the file size so far, so you shall be able to save the file to your computer and examine it or process it with some program. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect immediately, so if you no longer need one, you can stop it with simply a click from the very same section of the CP. You will still have the ability to access the already developed content by clicking on the Download link.
