In cPanel you can access your website’s raw access logs to see the traffic to your website, before it is turned into a report by statistics software. This is great for taking a closer look at the type of requests your site is getting.
To get the most out of your raw access logs, you would want to enable raw access log archiving in cPanel.
- Log into cPanel
Under the Metrics section, click on Raw Access
Click the domain you’d like to view stats for
Your browser should download the compressed raw access log
Once that has completed, use a program like 7zip to uncompress the files on your computer
Uncompress the file and open it
You will now see every request that your website had to deal with
If you just wanted to easily review your website traffic you could use something like AWStats in cPanel to do so.
