    I must have subdomains log http access and errors to thier own custom log files (a different log than the parent domain)

    does anyone know how to do this?

    You can try putting customlog directive in the subdomain's vhost.conf and vhost_ssl.conf files.


    After any modification to vhost or apache files, remember to use

    /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/websrvmng -u --vhost-name=domain.tld

    then restart apache.

    The subdomain's conf files should be located at:


    The vhost.conf and vhost_ssl.conf files are not normally created by default, so you may have to create them from scratch.

    Thanks, this looks good, I had limited success with a LogFile directive in the subdomain's vhosts.conf file.

    here is what I have,

    # CustomLog with format nickname
    LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b" common
    CustomLog /vhome/[domain]/statistics/logs/access_log-[doamin[ common

    - does not work, do I need to enclose this in a context?

    One question, is the vhosts.conf included withing the virtual domain context or after, I was never clear on where plesk included these files.

    has anyone ever been able to create a separate logfile for a subdomain? The above does not work, it just gets ignored.

    What I am trying to do is set up awastats for a subdomain only, no matter how I configure it it ignores the fact that I have told it to look only for the subdomain and it processes the entire log.

    - anyone?
