    I have a client who is asking for help in tracking who visited his site. This is to aid a police investigation , the suspicion is the info on the site was used to commit a crime against the owner.

    He would like to know who his recent visitors were. He wants to try and track them back to the pace of origin.

    What is the best way to do this? Please advise!

    You can also look through your logs for apache and see who has been there...

    /var/logs

    The client of course has already done this, bmcpanel.

    Thanks for the var/logs idea T-3. I will check 'em.

    I would do a:

    #cp /usr/local/apache/domlogs/thesite.com /home/yoursite/public_html/log.txt

    then give the cops a link to
    http://yoursite/log.html

    they can look through it themself :)

    This is a great idea, and I have cp'd the file but now I have a problem. I can't view the file, change permissions, etc. Can't download it either. It's there, but it's inaccessable. Current permission is 640. How do I change the permissions to view?

    chmod using the filemanager or ftp program doesn't work-"permission denied"

    chown user.user file.txt

    chmod it to 755.

    works for me
