cPanel Log Locations

 

cPanel

All cPanel logs are located in the folder:

/usr/local/cpanel/logs

The access_log contains all traffic to WHM, cPanel, and Webmail:

/usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log

The error_log contains all errors when accessing a cPanel related site:

/usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log

 

Apache

On cPanel servers each site has its own traffic log, but Apache's main access log can be viewed here:

/usr/local/apache/logs/access_log

To view each cPanel accounts individual access-logs:

/usr/local/apache/domlogs

Apache errors are logged to the error_log file:

/usr/local/apache/logs/error_log

 

Exim

The exim main log contains all transaction information:

/var/log/exim_mainlog

The reject log contains all connections that were rejected:

/var/log/exim_rejectlog

 

FTP

Regardless of the FTP server chosen in cPanel, it does not have it's own log and instead logs to:

/var/log/messages

 

SSH

On most servers the SSH service will log to the secure and system messages log files:

/var/log/secure
/var/log/messages
