    Hi, we have a dedicated server with about 40+ sites on it. We generally create the sites by restoring a master site cPanel backup, as this saves a ton of time and gets us a fair amount of the way towards completing the sites (they are all based on the same WP theme template).

    But our sys-admin contacted me to say that the symlinks for the access_log for the different accounts all appeared to all be pointing to the same directory (rather than their proper user directory). He's assuming it's because we cloned the cPanel accounts when creating new ones.

    - How can this be restored so that all sites' symlinks point to their proper access logs?

    Thanks. He wanted to debug a possible hack, and was having trouble tracking it down because of this.

    Hello :)

    Could you post a specific example of how a symbolic link is currently configured?

    Thank you.
