An access log is a text file containing a thorough report on all of the files accessed by your website visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a site visitor opens only the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files inside the log. The reason is that there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other pages, pics, etcetera. All of these files will be listed within the access log, allowing you to get a complete picture of the way your site works. The information is in plain text format, so the logs are often described as "raw data" as well. An access log shows the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, and also the user’s IP address, web browser and OS. Additional information, such as the referrer site, is sometimes included too. A log file could be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats supplied by your web server.

When you sign in to your Hepsia CP, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a complete list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created within the web hosting account. You'll only have to click on the On button, that is found on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs immediately. To stop this function, you'll have to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed independently and at any time. You will find a download link in the Logs section of the CP for any log generated by our system, so you're able to save the file to your computer system and view it or use it with some log processing software.
