    Lately we've been seeing these two files in the /tmp directory on every cPanel server we manage:

    access2.log
    access.log

    We never used to see this before.

    I'm trying to imagine why the cPanel system would put the general Apache access logs in a publicly accessible area on the server, but such reasoning escapes me.

    I recommend opening a ticket with our support team and letting our tech analysts examine your server configuration.
