WebFaction
Community site: login faq

When I ssh into my webfaction server it says something like:

Last login: Fri Apr 1 15:30:34 2011 from 69.299.345.271

Where do I find the record of all logins? Who has permission to change the record?

Thanks!

Hi,

You can use the command "last|grep <username>" to see all the times you have logged in before, only the system administrator has the access to change the record.

Hope that helps!

this gives me the last login: lastlog|grep username

when I try your command, I get nothing and no error msg: last|grep username

I know the last comment was a statement, but I meant toask why the command "last|grep username" is not working while "lastlog|grep username" is working.

thanks!

Hi, The username is the user with which you logged in, so if your username is benjamin the command would be last|grep benjamin

If the results still don't come up then you can file a support ticket with us so we can investigate further.

Hope that helps!

Thank webfaction again!

so apparently you can only put in the first 8 characters of your username
