How do I view the raw access logs of visitors to my web site?

Overview

Raw Access Logs allow you to see who has accessed your site without the use of graphs, charts or other graphics. You can use the Raw Access Logs menu to download a zipped version of the server's access log for your site. This can be very useful when you need to see who is accessing your site quickly.

There are three sections available on the "Raw Access Log" page:

  • Configure Logs
  • Download Current HTTP Access Logs
  • Archived Raw Logs

Configure Logs

When the "Raw Access Log" page loads, the first two options include:

  • Archive Logs in your home directory at the end of each month
  • Remove the previous month's archived logs from your home directory at the end of each month

Each of the above options has a check box next to it. You can check each one according to your own specific needs. Once you have checked or unchecked the check boxes in the above options, click on the Savebutton to save your settings.

Download Current HTTP Access Logs

This section includes a one-column table showing a list of domains associated with the web hosting account you are currently using to view cPanel. Click on any of the available domains to download the HTTP access logs.

Archived Raw Log

If there are any archived raw logs available, click on the one of the available links to download the raw log.
