Access Log Manager
Learn more about the Access Log Manager and the information you will have within it.
An access log includes a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is thorough, so in case you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your site. The log, which is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you might need this sort of a log is if you would like to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.
Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting
Our in-house built Hepsia CP has a section dedicated to various logs and the access logs are among them. When you sign in to your shared hosting account and take a look at this section, you'll find a list of all the domains and subdomains that you have. All it takes to permit the generation of access logs is to click on a button which will be available next to every single domain/subdomain. When the option is active, you'll 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 view it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective instantly, so if you no longer need one, you may stop it with simply a mouse click from the same section of the CP. You'll still have the ability to access the already generated content by clicking on the Download link.
