How do I access the Raw Access logs?

Raw access logs are text files that contain information about your website's visitors and the content on your website that they have accessed. This feature allows you to download a zipped version of your access log.

Configure Logs

This section allows you to configure cPanel to automatically archive logs and when to automatically delete them.

Select the Archive logs in your home directory at the end of each stats run box to save archived logs into the /home directory each time the system processes your website's statistics.

NOTE: The system processes website statistics approximately every 24 hours.

  • Select the Remove the previous month's archived logs from your home directory at the end of each month box to remove the previous month's logs at the end of each month.
  • Click Save to store your changes.
