An access log is a text file that contains a complete list of all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script program and a website visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files in the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page that are embedded - parts of other web pages, pics, etcetera. These files will be listed within the access log, so that you can get a detailed picture of the way your site works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each and 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 oftentimes provided as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics created by your web server.

All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to press a button which will be available next to every domain/subdomain. In case the option is enabled, you'll see a download link and also the file size so far, so you'll be able to save the file to your laptop or computer and look at it or process it with some application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect right away, so if you no longer need one, you'll be able to stop it with a mouse click from the same exact section of the CP.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our leading-edge website hosting platform will create access logs for each site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this feature is permitted.
