An access log is a text file which contains an extensive list of all of the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens just the home page, for instance, you may find numerous files inside the log. It is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pics, and so forth. All these files shall be listed in the access log, allowing you to get a detailed picture of the way your Internet site functions. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are occasionally 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, in addition to the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More info, such as the referrer site, is sometimes included too. A log file could be processed by various desktop apps for statistical purposes as an addition to the web statistics supplied by your server.

You'll be able to activate this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, incorporated with all shared accounts. Each domain name you host or subdomain you set up shall be listed there and you will see an On/Off option next to each and every one of them, so you can effortlessly trigger or deactivate the generation of access logs separately for each website that you have. You'll be able to save a log to your PC by clicking on the Download link that you will see within the same section of the CP. The link is available even after you disable the log generation, so you shall still have access to the data compiled by our system.
