Logs in ISPmanager

This article will help you to know how to configure the settings for saving logs and how to evaluate the work of the ISPmanager panel.

WWW-domain logs

  1. Go to the Monitoring and logs > WWW-request logs section.
  2. Highlight the user you need, click button, and choose Logs or choose Logs in the upper menu.
  3. With default domain settings, both access.log and error.log are saved. There is also a daily rotation – logs for previous days are archived, the log is updated.
  4. You can view the archives in the File manager section in the /var/www/username/data/logs directory.
  5. The settings for saving logs are configured when adding a new domain to the panel. To configure an existing domain, go to the Sites section.
  6. Highlight the domain you need, click button, and choose Edit or choose Edit in the upper menu.
  7. In the domain settings window that opens, go to the Additional settings tab.

    • set the maximum number of archives stored on the server
    • enable/disable and configure the report generator

Panel logs

To view the authorization logs in the ISPmanager panel as root user, follow the steps:

  1. Log into the panel as root.
  2. Go to the Monitoring logs > Access logs section.
  3. To view the control panel logs, go to the /usr/local/ mgr5/var directory in the File manager section. This allows you to evaluate the work of the ISPmanager panel and its modules.
  4. Click Go to.
The main logs of the ISPmanager control panel:
  • ispmgr.log – main log
  • backupctl-ispmgr.log – backup log
  • longtask.log – long-term operations execution log
  • pkg.log – software installation log

The limitation on the size of the panel logs is 100 MB. After reaching this size, the logs are rotated, the archives are saved to the /usr/local/mgr5/var/logs/ directory.
