An access log is a text file containing a thorough report on all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a visitor opens only the home page, for example, you may find many files in the log. This is because there are components on the home page that are embedded - parts of other pages, pictures, etc. All these files will be listed inside the access log, so you can get a complete picture of the way your site works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally termed "raw data" too. An access log contains the name of every requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. Additional information, like the referrer Internet site, is usually provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your server.

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you will find the access logs too.

Our customized cloud hosting platform will start producing an access log for each of them the instant you click on the On button, which you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as simple and can be accomplished by clicking on the Off button in the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, so you can easily save and manage them on your PC or laptop.

The feature may be enabled through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this can be done separately for every single domain name or subdomain that you have in your account. As soon as you log in and look at the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll discover a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click shall activate the log generation and a second one shall disable it, so you can control this feature with great convenience. A Download link within the same section will enable you to save the compiled content as a text file, which you could then use on your laptop or computer. Even when the logs are deactivated, you will still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
