    Is it possible to find out (via IP address/etc) :

    1. Who deleted files inside a cpanel account?

    2. Who logged in to cpanel account?

    Hi,

    For this you will have to check your cPanel access logs on your server but you need root access of your server. Otherwise you have to contact your hosting provider to check cPanel access logs of your account.

    Hello,

    FYI, path to log files of cPanel is /usr/local/cpanel/access_logs . Just in case if file is deleted using FTP then you will need to check log file /var/log/messages .

    Hello,

    File Manager activity is logged to /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log. You may also find the /usr/local/cpanel/logs/login_log helpful to see which IP addresses logged into cPanel. Root access to the server is required in order to view these logs.

    Thank you.
