Access Log Manager
Find out about the Access Log Manager and the info that may be inside it.
An access log features a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is thorough, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your site. The log, that's also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you typically get with a hosting account, not a replacement. One example why you may require such a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.
Access Log Manager in Shared Website Hosting
Our custom Hepsia Control Panel includes a section focused on various logs and the access logs are one of them. As soon as you sign in to your shared website hosting account and take a look at 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 each 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 application. Enabling or disabling the logs takes effect right away, so if you don't need one, you may stop it with only a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel. You shall still have the ability to access the already created content by simply clicking on the Download link.
