    Hello,

    Does somebody know how I can automatically receive email alerts whenever somebody logs in to WHM and cPanel on my server? I need this because I have 3rd-party programmers working on the server and I want to know exactly when they're logging in. The server doesn't have any regular users so I don't need to worry about getting a constant flow of cPanel login alerts!

    Thanks,
    Leo

    Hi,

    I am not sure about email alert but I think the specific information you want, could be found from cpanel log, enable cpanel logging.

    thx

    Thanks, email alerts would be best, but logging the logins is definitely better than nothing.

    Unfortunately I can't find the option to enable this anywhere in WHM. I see some logging options in 'Tweak Settings', but no options for logging logins. Can someone please point me in the right direction?

    Thanks.

    I use an invisible counter that emails me when called in my WHM but that does require modifying the skin.

    That sounds good, do you have an example of the counter code?

    Do you need to make the change to the skin every time you update WHM?

    You can use pretty much any counter script. Some even have the option of emailing, or you could just add a simple mail subroutine to any counter script.

    Try this.

    The WHM files don't get changed very often.
