    I was wondering how to turn on Log Watch, so that I receive a nightly email from the server? Any help is much appreciated!

    Go on, have a guess
    You should just have to create a symlink in /etc/cron.daily like this:

    ln -s /log.d/scripts/logwatch.pl /etc/cron.daily/00-logwatch

    The 00- beforehand makes sure it is run first each day.

    Thru Cpanel

    Is there anyway to setup it up via Cpanel?

    No, you have to do it from the root shell via SSH.
