    Hello,

    I would like to see activity from the File Manager, for example what files have been uploaded, downloaded or overwritten. How do I see such logs.

    Thanks

    Hello :),

    You will find out all these logs in /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log file, But you need root access to check this file and Your access level is listed is "Website Owner" so please contact your hosting provider to check this for you.

    Hello,

    File Manager activity is logged to /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log. You will need root access to the system to access this log file, or you can contact your web hosting provider for help with obtaining specific information.

    I suggest voting and adding feedback to the following feature request if you want to see a separate log file for File Manager:

    Built-in filemanager "transfer log"

    Thank you.
