    When cpanel updates the monthly log file, it deletes some of the existing log information for that month.

    How can I prevent the loss of log information?

    I want it all :) Yes I'm a pack rat :)


    Also the text size in the window I'm typing in now is so tiny. Can this be changed?
    The title text is huge, but this text size in this box is so tiny that it hurts my eyes.

    Login into root WHM.

    Goto:

    Tweak Settings -> Scroll about half way down...

    UNCHECK Delete each domain's access logs after stats run

    CHECK Keep log files at the end of the month


    About the text size...

    That is an issue with your own computer internet browser. If using Internet Explorer, goto one of the menus at the top (depending on your version) and you are looking for ZOOM and TEXT SIZE.

    Zoom = 100%
    TEXT SIZE = MEDIUM

    I'm using IE 6. I have text size set at medium. I don't think there is a zoom setting. When this text shows up in the post, it's sise is fine, but in this window I'm typing it it's so tiny.

    Cpanel is keeping the logs for each month, and it does not delet all of the access logs, just some of them. Kind of strange how it decides with ones to keep, and wich ones to delet.

    I'm on a shared server, so I'll have to get the host to check that out, since those settings are in the root.

    Anything else they should check while they are at it?

    This is a system-wide setting, I doubt they will change it for just you. However, you can log into CPanel each month and download the month's logfiles to your own computer. There is a special ftp location you get those from. They link is in CPanel.

    You would need to contact your web hosting provider then regarding this issue. Most system administrators do not like keeping logs because they can very easily fill up a hard drive very fast.

    What I used to do is download the files every month. If you're skilled with scripting, you can write a PHP script that automatically copies the logs to a different directory on your account and set it up as a cron job. If not, ignore what I just said and go with just downloading once a month.

    Just remember, just as logs will fill a hard drive if unchecked - so will logs fill your disk space quota.
