Log File Format for Linux Shared Hosting

Log files are statistical data recorded about the visitors to your website. These statistics can be easily viewed in 1&1 SiteAnalytics. You can learn more by browsing the 1&1 SiteAnalytics section of our FAQ.

The raw log files (in plain text) are saved in the logs/ folder within your web space. You can then take these to your own software application for analysis.

The raw log files are in Apache format:

LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %s %b %v \"%{Referer}i\" \"%{User-agent}i\" \"%{X-Forwarded-For}i\""

For more help on deciphering what values the format strings above represent, please reference the mod_log_config - Apache HTTP Server page.
