Any file which was requested for whatever reason shall be listed, so if you have only one webpage with 3 embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log shall contain a total of six entries - one for any of the 6 files which were accessed when the visitor opened the webpage. A log normally offers the file name and path, the date, as well as the visitor’s Operating System, Internet browser and IP address. Oftentimes you can also find the referrer websites that sent the visitors to your website. The info that an access log file features is in human-readable plain text format.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature can be enabled from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and this could be done independently for each domain name or subdomain you have within your account. After you log in and visit the Access/Error Logs section of the Control Panel, you will find a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. One click shall trigger the log generation and a second one shall deactivate it, so you can control this function with great ease. A Download link within the same section will permit you to save the compiled content as a text file, that you can then use on your computer system. Even when the logs are deactivated, you'll still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
