Admin Activity Logs

Admin Activity Logs allows you to access the logging data which is created when actions are taken in the admin. This can be used as a security audit or to figure out when an undesired change was made.

You cannot directly view your admin activity logs on this page. To view this table, you will have to use phpMyAdmin, or export a CSV, and download the output to your own computer.

When viewing this data, note that the field gzpost is a json-encoded blob, so you will not be able to view it directly in phpMyAdmin or in a phpMyAdmin export. However, using the Export feature built into this page (at the top) will allow you to view the gzpost data.

If you are receiving the message, “The Admin Activity Logs table has records over 2 months old and should be archived to conserve space”

Zen Cart Admin Activity Log button

this is what you should do:

a) Go to Admins > Admin Activity Logs. Where it says, “Review or Export Logs,” check the box that says “Save to file on server” and press the Go button on the right. This will save your logs to disk in case you need them for troubleshooting. The recommended retention period is 12 months.

b) At the bottom of the screen, press the Reset button. This will take you to the Admin Activity Log Manager manager page. On this page, press Reset again to delete your logs.

Still have questions? Use the Search box in the upper right, or try the full list of FAQs. If you can't find it there, head over to the Zen Cart support forum and ask there in the appropriate subforum. In your post, please include your Zen Cart and PHP versions, and a link to your site.
