Accessing server web logs on cPanel

Web server logs allow you to see a list of all connections that have been made to your site on hosting. In most cases, this information is technical and does not affect the state of your website.
But if you need such statistics, you can find it in the "Raw Access" section of your control panel. There are two main sections there:

  1.  Download Current Raw Access Logs
    • here are the logs for the last day or two. Note: each domain can have two log files: for HTTP and HTTPS connections.
  2. Archived Raw Logs
    • here you can find a full log of all connections to the domain for the selected month.

All files are in a .gz archive. It can be opened with most file archivers. Inside is a log file, which can be opened with Notepad or any other text editor.
