What’s in the logs?

Within Plesk's log browser feature there are many different log types. Each log type has a distinct purpose and if utilised correctly can help troubleshoot any server problems that might arise. You might be trying to track down the reason a site has suddenly gone down. Checking the log type below will determine the cause.

  • Apache error (error_log). This log contains diagnostic information. It also records any errors that the Apache web server encounters in processing requests.

For a full list of the different log types available please visit Plesk's information page.
