Check Access and log of particular FTP user

  • Answered
I have two team working on my site, and both have different ftp accounts. I need to know, if I can check which account was used to upload which file?
I mean, kind of a Activity log for each FTP user.


Hello amitpsri, Without having root access to your server and being able to view the system-wide logs, you could follow the steps in my guide on how to view FTP uploads with archived raw logs in order to view the FTP uploads. Unfortunately if you need to also see other activity such as file deletion, this is only available in the system-wide logs. Please let us know if you have any further questions at all. - Jacob
Thank you for your question amitpsri! You can check ftp logs through SSH. You will need to be on a VPS or Dedicated server with shell access. The following paths are where the FTP logs are located. /var/log/messages /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log /usr/local/cpanel/logs/login_log If you are on a shared server, Unfortunately, because the FTP logs are not stored in the cPanel, you will need to contact tech support for this. Sorry for the inconvenience. Best Regards, James R
