Is there a login attempt log?
« on: October 01, 2014, 09:53:50 AM »
Hi. I would like to know if there is a way to find possible attempted logins to my account. Another forum stated that there should be this file: /usr/local/cpanel/logs/login_log to see it. I put that in my cPanel file manager search box but it stated "no records found." Is there a way to get that particular information? I really appreciate your help, and thanks.

If you have root login, I think at shell, you can just type either "last" or "lastlog".

Are you using cPanel (older servers) or LPCP (newer servers) as your control panel? "cPanel" is a brand name for a certain control panel, not a generic term. I think both control panels will show you the last login, but there may not be a full log of attempts. If you think someone is trying to hack into your account, open a support ticket to see if there's anything they can do to restrict origin IP addresses, etc. Also, consider changing your password, but only after you have swept your PC for spyware/viruses.
