Ideally you should secure all session and transaction logs.


Sessions will be for login logout failed etc and transaction should tell what was the command issues and what happened

Hello Everyone,

I am a beginner and have a query, please guide:

What kind of server logs we need to maintain which can be helpful in investigations. As of now I keep these:

1) Website Access Log

2) FTP Acees Log

3) MySQL Access Log
/var/lib/mysql called hostname.log and hostname-slow.log where hostname is the short hostname for the machine.

4) Cpanel Access Log

Thanks & Regards,

Learner Kid
