An access log is a text file containing a complete report on all the files accessed by your site visitors. All the files that were requested in one way or another shall be included, so if you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you may find a lot of files inside the log. This is because there are resources on the home page which are embedded - parts of other web pages, graphics, etc. These files shall be listed inside the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your website works. The info is in plain text format, so the logs are frequently referred to as "raw data" as well. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, along with the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. Additional information, like the referrer Internet site, is oftentimes included too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats generated by your website hosting server.

You will simply have to click on the On button, that is found on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs immediately.
