    Hi.
    I looked through the forum and couldn't find an answer. Where can I find cPanel login logs?
    File: /usr/local/cpanel/logs/login_log shows only information about bad logins. It is also truncated every night (probably by upcp).

    I couldn't find any info in /var/log directory. Is there maybe a way to get more logs from cPanel? Especially about users loging in and out.

    Happy New Year :)

    Hi.
    Access log shows most of the connections to come from 127.0.0.1 (localhost) - probably because of SSL tunnel, which is used for https connections.

    Is there another logfile? Maybe a tweek in cPanels configuration?

    Go on, have a guess
    That's the only log. If you upgrade cPanel to the latest release tree that you're using then the new internal SSL support for WHM and cPanel logs the true users IP address. There's no specific login log, there is a login failure log in the same directory.
