This article tells how to check the access logs in the Plesk. They monitor the information about all coming requests to your website. The user shows data on every IP address that has opened on your website, what resources they have requested, along with the time.

There are two main ways to check the access logs in Plesk, depending on whether you want to see logs for the Plesk control panel itself (admin logins) or for your website:

For Website Access Logs:

Navigate to Websites & Domains: In the Plesk control panel sidebar, locate and click on the “Websites & Domains” section.

Select the Domain: From the list of domains you manage, find the one for which you want to view the access logs.


Access the Logs: Look for the “Logs” icon or option associated with the chosen domain and click on it.



This will either display the access logs directly or open a menu with log options.



Select the logs list from which you want to view the message. Click the button:



Now, select the logs you wish to view from the menu.

Viewing the Access Logs:

  • You are presented with a basic view of the access logs directly.
  • Plesk might offer options to:
    • Manage Log Files: This could show a list of all tracked log files for the domain, allowing you to download or delete them.
    • Filter or Search: You can filter the logs by date range or search for specific terms.

For Plesk Admin Login Logs (limited access):

Unfortunately, Plesk doesn’t directly display successful login attempts for the admin panel. However, you can check for failed login attempts:

  1. Go to Tools & Settings: In the Plesk interface, navigate to the “Tools & Settings” section.
  2. Find Action Log: Look for the “Action Log” option within “Tools & Settings“.

Note: This log will only show failed login attempts, not successful ones.

For more comprehensive logging of admin activity, consider the Website Log Check feature (available in some Plesk versions) or consult your web hosting provider’s documentation for alternative methods.
