    Is it possible for a user to download the raw log files via FTP, rather than through cPanel?

    doesn't appear to be possible for a end user to download via ftp. the apache domlogs folder permissions are set to 0711 root:wheel which will prevent the ftp client from being able to get a folder listing or from being able to access the log files unless the user is root.

    All of the /var/log files are set for root access only so again the regular user account can not access them direct

    I have not tried it but you might could do a symlink to the users home directory to give them direct ftp access but I have not tested this
