    How To View .gz Raw Access Files


    I too had the same problems as the rest of you. I was unable to open or extract my Raw Log .gz Files, then I stumbled on a way to do it.

    Step 1: Go to your cPanel. (I have cPanel 11)

    Step 2: Go to File Manager

    Step 3: You should have an option of selecting one of four directories. Choose the "Document Root for" (for your particular website) Note: At the time I did this I also had "Show hidden files selected" Click OK.

    Step 4: A web page should open. Look to your left where you should see "public_html/logs"

    Step 5: Click on "logs"

    Step 6: You should see a list of your Access Log Files. Select one of your files.

    Step 7: At the top of your menu bar you should see "Extract". Click it.

    Step 8: The icon associated with your file should change to a different icon. At the top of your menu bar, go select "View". Presto!

    Hopefully this works for the rest of you. It did for me.
