    When checking my web stats through cPanel - Awstats - Authenticated users - there's an item here for "other logins (and/or anonymous users)".
    What is this? Is someone else accessing my cPanel or stats?

    Go on, have a guess
    AFAIK, "other logins" or "Authenticated users" refers to accesses through .htaccess/.htpasswd files, i.e. a part of the site protected by a htaccess password.

    Thanks Chirpy but in this authenticated users section, it shows my logins as an authenticated user, but it also has this "other logins (and/or anonymous users)" logins.
    Does this mean that others are accessing my cPanel or stats?
    If so, how do I stop it.

    have you enabled any directory protection inside your domain ? If yes.. then it is those that are displayed.

    No I haven't enabled any directory protection.
    Didn't know I could until you mentioned it. Still learning.
    Had a look through the password protected directories tonight though and it looks like I'll have to learn more about that.
    I found a "Temp" file in file manager which had quite a bit of stuff in relating to stats ie: files - analog, awstats, urchin etc
    Could these have something to do with the anonymous users logins?
