    domlogs 2 copies?

    This I noticed after updating the cpanel/webhost manager to v 11.x

    There are not 2 copies of the access log, both updating live, the first one which was always there is at

    /usr/local/apache/domlogs/account.com

    and the second one at:

    /usr/local/apache/domlogs/account/account.com

    Does anyone know why there is a need to keep and update 2 log files and how I can go back 1 access log? Thank you.

    No, I don't know what are inodes. But /usr/local/apache/domlogs/account/account.com don't appear to be a symbolic link or anything. Looks like a regular folder with access log in it being updated live.

    so is it normal? and what is the use of it? Thanks.

    Try a ls -i on both files and you will see the same number appear, meaning they have the same inode, so they are the same file. An update on this inode will thus change the two files at the same time (if you can really speak of two files)

    user@server [/usr/local/apache/domlogs]# ls -i yourdomain.com
    316698 yourdomain.com

    user@server [/usr/local/apache/domlogs/account]# ls -i yourdomain.com
    316698 yourdomain.com
