IP Address for Specific File Download

Hello and thanks ahead of time for your help.  It is greatly appreciated.

My site uses cpanel which includes awstats.  I need to determine who (what specific IP address) downloaded a specific file on my site sometime last month.  The standard download stats (in awstats) show that the file had a hit count of 1 last month.  (The 206 hit counts were more; but I think these can be ignored).

Unfortunately, I did not have the cpanel raw access log archive enabled when the file was downloaded, and I'm disappointed, but I'm not sure if I can still get there with the information that awstats gathered the time the download was performed.

Will the Follow Me Plugin provide this information for a file that was downloaded before the plugin was installed, or will it only give me information from when the plugin is installed and following?  I'm hoping you say the first case.

If so, I believe I can click through every IP address (on the zoom link) until I find the one that accessed the specific file I am interested in.

Other ideas?

Thanks so much.

If the log file is not available anymore, there is no way to know who downloaded the file.

I would have liked to give you better news.
