    Hi there,

    I'm looking into historic webmail access for a customer, and I know that I can find the details I need in /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log. There is access_log-20151128.gz file there for last week's logs, but none further back than that. Is there anywhere on the server where I will be able to find access logs for our webmail going further back? I have enabled backing up access logs (under backup config), but I can't find them in the backups anywhere.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hello :)

    The access logs referenced in "WHM >> Backup >> Backup Configuration" are referring to the domain access logs. There's no other location for the archived /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log file unless you manually backed it up at some point in time.

    Thank you.
