Raw Access Logs

This Article Includes: Accessing and Downloading your Raw Access Logs.  

The First Step is to log in to your cPanel Control Panel. You should be able to log in at: http://www.Your_Domain.com:2083 (where Your_Domain.com is your actual Domain).

After Logged In, Click on the “Raw Access Logs” Icon Under the “Logs” Heading.

Raw access logs are text files that contain information about your visitors and what content on your website they have accessed.

Configure Logs

At the main screen, the checkboxes at the top of the page allow archive logs to be included in the /home directory each time the system processes your website’s statistics or to set up cPanel to remove the previous month’s log.

Remember: Click Save to store your changes.

Download and View Your Raw Access Logs

To download a raw access log, click the desired link under the Domain heading. This action will automatically download the log file to your computer. Once the text file is on your computer, you can open it with your preferred text editor.

Under the Archived Raw Logs heading are the archived logs contained in your /home directory. To download an archived log, click the filename. You can also open the file in your /home directory by accessing it in your CLI and using a text editor.
