    I just got a new cPanel box from ev1 (WHM 9.1.0 cPanel 9.1.0-R85 on RHES3) and when I login as admin via ssh it does not show the last login info (e.g. the ip and time of the last login).

    Should I be concerned about this (all scans report everything ok, no hacks).

    Any ideas on what I have to change to get this to work? TIA _unfiltered.

    Go on, have a guess
    Could be nothing, could be something...

    Do you have a /var/log/lastlog file?

    What do you get if you run:

    lastlog -u root

    Do you see your last login showing?

    Does the following file exist:


    If it does exist, rename or remove it and login again.
