This function retrieves the Apache log file's most recent hits to a domain.


We strongly recommend that you use UAPI instead of cPanel API 2. However, no equivalent UAPI function exists.




 For more information, read our Calls from the WHM API documentation.

 LiveAPI PHP Class
$cpanel = new CPANEL(); // Connect to cPanel - only do this once.
// Retrieve last Apache hits for
$get_last_apache_hit = $cpanel->api2(
    'Stats', 'lastapachehits',
		'domain' 			=> '',


For more information, read our Guide to the LiveAPI System.


 LiveAPI Perl Module
my $cpliveapi = Cpanel::LiveAPI->new(); # Connect to cPanel - only do this once.
# Retrieve last Apache hits for
my $get_last_apache_hit = $cpliveapi->api2(
    'stats', 'lastapachehits',
			'domain' 			=> '',


For more information, read our Guide to the LiveAPI System.

 cPanel Tag System (deprecated)


  • In cPanel & WHM version 11.30 and later, cPanel tags are deprecated. We strongly recommend that you only use the LiveAPI system to call the cPanel APIs. Examples are only present in order to help developers move from the old cPanel tag system to our LiveAPI.
  • cPanel API 2 calls that use cPanel tags vary in code syntax and in their output.
  • For more information, read our Deprecated cPanel Tag Usage documentation.

 Command Line
