    Hello all!

    Are there anyway to use instant email notifications when each cPanel user login to the account (web or SSH) with the IP address and host name? Or view the past each cPanel account user login time, IP and host name? Right now I enabled WHM login email alert, it works perfectly. But I like to use this feature to cPanel accounts too.

    My VPS and cPanel has only one user (I don't resell my VPS, therefore I'm the only one user). I need this feature for security purpose. Because the last couple of days I saw that several Wordpress plugins files have been changed. But they are not code injection etc malware activities, just a text missing etc stuff.

    I read we can use this feature with csf, but no idea how to implement it.

    Thanks!

    I think maybe LFD has this feature but it might just alert on failed logins or logins as root. I don't really remember.

    LFD = Login Failure Daemon. It is part of CSF.

    I enabled that option. But I think it only send an mail if the login failed, if the login success it's not send any mail. But I'm searching if send email notification when each cPanel account login succeeded or failed.

    Got it. Thanks edigest.
