An access log is a thorough list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a certain site. Each and every file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have just one webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, for instance, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the six files that were accessed when the visitor opened the page. A log normally provides the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you could also find the referrer Internet sites that sent the visitors to your website. The info which an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format. It may be processed by special software on a PC and used to prepare reports on the performance of an Internet site, independent of the web stats which your web hosting server may have created.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than a few clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you need them. The function can be enabled through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done separately for each and every domain name or subdomain you have in your account. After you log in and navigate to the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each of them. One click shall activate the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this feature with great efficiency. A Download link in the same section will permit you to save the gathered content as a text file, which you may then use on your computer. Even if the logs are disabled, you will still be able to download the data which has been previously generated.
