How to remove domain logs in Plesk?
Log in to Plesk.
Go to Domains > example.com > Logs > Manage Log Files.
Select log files that should be deleted and click Remove.
Note: On Linux servers, log file extensions .gz, .webstat, .processed can be safely removed.
Connect to a Plesk server via SSH.
Get the website logs structure:
Note: Subdomain and additional domain logs are located in subfolders, e.g. /var/www/vhosts/example.com/logs/sub.example.com.
# ls -l /var/www/vhosts/example.com/logs … drwx—— 2 user root 4096 Dec 1 18:24 . drwx–x— 5 user psaserv 4096 Dec 1 17:39 .. -rw-r–r– 2 root root 132 Dec 1 17:39 access_log -rw-r–r– 2 root root 14 Dec 1 18:24 access_log.processed -rw——- 1 root root 0 Dec 1 18:24 access_log.webstat -rw-r–r– 2 root root 0 Dec 1 17:39 access_ssl_log -rw-r–r– 2 root root 0 Dec 1 18:24 access_ssl_log.processed -rw——- 1 root root 0 Dec 1 18:24 access_ssl_log.webstat -rw-r–r– 2 root root 1278 Dec 1 18:28 error_log -rw-r–r– 2 root root 16 Dec 1 18:28 error_log.gz -rw-r–r– 2 root root 0 Dec 1 17:39 proxy_access_log -rw-r–r– 2 root root 0 Dec 1 17:39 proxy_access_ssl_log -rw-r–r– 2 root root 0 Dec 1 17:39 proxy_error_log
Remove log files:
Log files with file extensions .gz, .webstat, .processed can be safely removed:
# rm -rf /var/www/vhosts/example.com/logs/error_log.gz
Main website log files (access_log, error_log, access_ssl_log) must be cleared:
Warning: Removing main log files instead of clearing them will lead to incorrect functionality of Apache and nginx.
# cat /dev/null >/var/www/vhosts/example.com/logs/error_log
