Accessing the Raw Access Logs in cPanelWritten by Tim Sisson
Raw Access Logs allow you to see who has visited your website without the use of graphs, charts, or graphics. cPanel allows you to download the zipped version of your account’s access logs for a specific site. This can be useful if you want to quickly determine who has visited your website.
You'll want to be sure that you know about enabling raw access log archiving in cPanel first, then you can use the instructions below to access your archived raw access logs.
- Log into cPanel
- Go to the section called “Logs” and click on “Raw Access Logs”
- Select the domain or subdomain you wish to view the stats for
- Once you click on a domain, the compressed log for that domain will automatically download to your local computer. Once the download has completed, you will need a program to open the file and uncompress it. We use 7-zip
- Uncompress the file and open it. Once the file is open, each visitors will be on a separate line
