On Apache service nodes every website has it's own access_log log file in the directory /var/www/vhosts/system/, where is the domain name.

How to disable per-website logging on Apache nodes so the access_log file will not be written in the directory /var/www/vhosts/system/


In order to disable per-website logging comment out the following line in the /etc/httpd/conf/plesk.conf.d/server.conf configuration file:

CustomLog  "|/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/pipelog 443" plesklog

To disable general logging to the /var/log/httpd/access_log file, comment out the following line in the file /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:

CustomLog logs/access_log combined

To apply changes reload the Apache configuration:

# service httpd reload
