Webmail access logs


Recommended Posts

Since this a question of perhaps general interest, I'll ask it here:

Is it possible for a shared hosting user to read the cpanel webmail access logs for his site?

On the cpanel forums, the location is identified as
> cPanel, WHM, and Webmail activity is logged to /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log.
> The ability to review this log file is restricted to the root user.
...   The latter part appears correct since "ls /usr/local/cpanel" gives permission denied,
...   and "ls  /usr/local/cpanel/logs/" gives "no such file or directory.

Is there a way to make this accessible?
Perhaps not, if everyone's are all mixed together.

Access from a POP client would also be useful - but that might evade even any generat cpanel logs.

Unfortunately these logs are not readable by shared users as like you mentioned it does require root access. If you're concerned about logins / unusual activity to your email address(es) our team can provide you the last login entries we have for the address(es) in question via support ticket.
