Anyone else experienced this or know a fix (if needed)

My cpanel access_log is showing a different time/date stamp as other logs.

CPanel log: [07/18/2007:12:38:25 -0000]

Exim log: 2007-07-18 08:42:45

Just wondering why exim would be using -0500 while CP is using -0000?

Yes, seems like access_log gets a fixed timezone rather than the timezone configured in the server :confused:


Perhaps it is for the convenience of the support team? :confused:

Sorry for bringing up this old topic, but any advice on this?

Apache and Exim logs are using server time (America/Caracas) but cpanel logs uses UTC (?).

Is there a way we can resync cpanel logs timestamps with the server timezone?

Thank you.

Hello,

This is addressed with internal case number 186981. All cpsrvd logs will use the same time stamp (local time). This change is scheduled for cPanel version 11.52.

Thank you.

I have same issue with a timestamp on cPanel access log. Running WHM 11.50.0.20
Hello :)

You won't see this addressed until cPanel version 11.52 due to the scope of changes required to fix this behavior.

Thank you.

The logs that are most frequently examined by humans (error_log, login_log, etc) log in local time.

The access_log will remain in GMT/Z time for compatibility with stats programs.
