An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is detailed, so if you have a page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically features the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, which is also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An example why you may require this sort of a log is if you want to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web statistics.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia CP features a section focused on various logs and the access logs are one of them. Once you sign in to your cloud hosting account and navigate to this section, you will find a list of all the domains and subdomains which you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to press a button that'll be available next to each domain/subdomain. When 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 personal computer and examine it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect immediately, so if you don't require one, you could stop it with just a click from the very same section of the CP. You shall still have the ability to access the already created content by simply clicking on the Download link.
