An access log includes a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your site. The list is thorough, so if you have a web 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 includes the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that is also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An illustration why you may require this type of a log is if you wish to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.

All it takes to allow the generation of access logs is to click on a button which will be available next to each and every domain/subdomain. If the option is enabled, you will see a download link and also the file size so far, so you shall be able to save the file to your computer and examine it or process it with some app. Enabling or disabling the logs becomes effective instantly, so if you don't need one, you may stop it with just a mouse click from the same section of the Control Panel. You will still have the ability to access the already developed content by simply clicking the Download link.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
