    Hello all,

    Some files and folders on my server for a couple of domains have their permissions changed to 777 and i am sure the user has done it and i tried to convey it to him, But HE REFUSES TO OBLIGE,

    Can any one here tell me how can i check the FTP logs and find out the time and ip address from where the permissions were changed.

    Any assistance would be of great help.

    Thank you

    Which FTP server are you using? Do you think they're using FTP, the File Manager in cPanel, a Cron task, or their shell to make these changes?

    Thank you for your revert Jamyn :)

    The server is configured to use "Pure-FTPD" server, They are either using "File Manager" or FTP client to make changes to their files and folders.

    Thank you

    This command will tell you the cpanel activity:


    Im not sure how you would be able to tell of any permission change though.
