Can I Access My FTP Log Files?

Shared and Reseller hosting

For Shared and Reseller accounts, users can access their FTP logs via cPanel. By logging into cPanel, clicking on Raw Access, and then clicking on the log you wish to download. Please note that this will not include entries since the last run of AWStats and Webalizer which occurs once per day.

If you would like the FTP logs from the same day, please contact us via phone or chat to request a copy of the logs HostGator has. Please note that we do not keep the logs for more than a few days, so our logs will be limited.

VPS and Dedicated hosting

On a VPS or Dedicated Server, FTP log files are located in the /var/log/messages directory.
