Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am using Plesk psa v8.6.0_build86080930.03 os_RedHat el4. Where can I access the activity log files? I want to see what activities has been perform and by whom in my plesk panel?

We can see the last 10 activities in the plesk desktop page. but I want to see all of them or at least the one which has been done in last months.

Any idea?

I really hate when I need to answer my own questions :)

It is located under Plesk control panel -> Server -> Action Log (in Control Panel section)

Plesk stores it directly in the database.

In two tables.

You can dump the data with the following command:

mysql -u admin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow` psa -e "select * from log_actions left join log_components on log_actions.id = log_components.action_id"

You may wish to check /usr/local/psa/admin/logs.

Yes I knew this path. but which file keep the activity log? there many files in that directory. –  user57221 Apr 6 '11 at 14:58
/usr/local/psa/admin/logs/panel.log I believe –  Richard Apr 6 '11 at 15:43

Here are the files:

Error logs are stored in: /var/log/sw-cp-server/error_log

Access logs are stored in: /usr/local/psa/admin/logs/httpsd_access_log

Panel logs are stored in: /usr/local/psa/admin/logs/panel.log

Further you can find all the log files list in the following KB created by Parallels: http://kb.parallels.com/en/111283
