An access log is a text file containing a full report on all the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All of the files which were requested in one way or another shall be included, so when you have a PHP script app and a site visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find numerous files in the log. It is because there are things on the home page that are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pictures, etcetera. These files shall be listed inside the access log, so you're able to get a detailed picture of the way your site performs. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are sometimes described as "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, Internet browser and OS. More info, like the referrer Internet site, is typically supplied as well. A log file may be processed by various desktop programs for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats created by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

A single click shall trigger the log generation and a second one will disable it, so you can control this function with great simplicity.

Whether or not the logs are deactivated, you shall still be able to download the data that has been previously generated.
