In cPanel there is no feature to view the cron logs files using a build-in feature. However, by using the terminal feature, you can view the cron log files using cPanel. To use this feature, you will need WHM access and the terminal feature enabled. This kind of access is only available to server owners.

WARNING: The terminal is connection to the server at the highest level with full control over the server. Make sure that you only use the command below if you are not familiar with this. Otherwise, you may risk that you damage your server permanently.

  1. Log in to WHM.
  2. Navigate to Server Configuration -> Terminal.
  3. Use one of the following options:
    • Tail the log:
      tail -f /var/log/cron
    • Open the full file:

      cat /var/log/cron

    • Open the file with a scroll function (arrow down/up on the keyboard)

      more /var/log/cron
