Community site: login faq

An effective tool in monitoring for hacking on a server is a log of logins neatly formatted:

Monday 8am - Ssh from a.b.c.d (USA) Tuesday 8:30am - Ssh from a.b.c.d (USA) Wednesday 1am - Ssh from x.y.z.z (Russia) Wednesday 8:30am - Ssh from a.b.c.d (USA)

Is there such a feature for my webfaction hosts? Especially with things like [http://www.welivesecurity.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/operation_windigo.pdf][1] Windigo running about, a bit of caution would feel comfortable.

Of course i'd only want to see MY logins, not the logins of anyone else on the host.

We don't run virtual hosts here. You're on a shared server. As such, we can't give you direct access to the SSH logs, but if you open a support ticket we're happy to extract the login activity for your account from the logs for you.
