How to Download your Website RAW Access Logs in cPanel

Sometimes the AWStats aren’t enough and you need to download your Website Access Logs for a deeper examination. Not to worry, cPanel makes this really easy!

Step 1: Log in to your cPanel. There’s a lot of ways to do this, but the sure-fire easiest way is to log in to your Client Area, then open your cPanel.

Step 2: Look for the Metrics section (6th from the top of cPanel) and click Raw Access.

Step 3: When the Raw Access panel has opened, click the domain for which you want to download raw access logs.

Pro Tip:

If you use a SSL Certificate on your website, be sure to download the SSL version of your logs. 

After clicking the domain link, your access logs will be downloaded in a tar.gz format.

You can use a program like 7Zip or a command-line utility to unpackage these files and import them into the application of your choice for further examination.
