    I hired some developers to work on my site. I wanted to know if there was any way where I can monitor the activity that is being done by a developer. For instance, which files are they downloading or uploading, Which files are they editing. Is this possible? How can I achieve this?

    Sorry if this is a noob questions.

    What type of access did you provide to the developers? If it was FTP access, then you can see the activity in the FTP logs on the account. If you have an FTP client like Filezilla, you would see and then be able to download these logs using:

    Username: cpaneluser_logs
    Password: cPanelpassword

    Please replace with the domain name, cpaneluser with the cPanel username, and cPanelpassword with the cPanel user's password for the cPanel account.
