How to manage the raw access logs

Raw access logs allow you to see who has accessed your site without the use of graphs, charts or other graphics. This tutorial will assume that you are already logged into your cPanel. If you are having problems doing that or don't know how, please view the tutorial named: How to log into cPanel.

On the main page of your cPanel scroll down to the logs section and click on the raw access logs link to take you to the raw access logs main page. This is where you tell the system how to manage the raw access log files that are generated daily for your account.

The first check box will tell your system to archive the logs every month and the second asks to have the previous months logs deleted at the end of each month. If you mark either check box, click on the save button and you will be taken to a confirmation screen. If you check both boxes, the raw access logs will be archived at the end of every month in the home directory and the previous months will be deleted. Click on go back.

Scroll down on the page to find a list of all available raw access logs that you can download and use in a statistics program for analysis. Click on the log you wish to download and a pop-up will open. Click OK to download the selected logs for analysis.

You can now click the home link in the upper left corner and return to the main cPanel page or to exit cPanel use the logout link in the upper right corner. Remember, if you are using a public computer, ALWAYS logout of cPanel before closing.
