Web Hosting - Java/Tomcat - Log File Access

Java Customers have real time access to Apache and Tomcat logs via Secure FTP and the Plesk File Manager

Via Secure FTP:

  1. Connect your Secure FTP client by entering the supplied host-name, username and password.
  2. Navigate to the /logs folder
  3. Here you will find real time logs and archives of access, error and Tomcat logs

Via Plesk's File Manager:

  1. Login to the Plesk Control Panel for the domain.
  2. Access Plesk File Manger.
  3. Navigate to the /logs folder 
  4. Here you will find real time logs and archives of access, error and Tomcat logs

Consider logging when developing and preparing your application for deployment. It is worth considering adding top level error handling code which can log errors and warnings to your web application logs as a more appropriate location than tomcat logs. Keep in mind that Apache HTTP logs will not contain any useful information about an application error, only that an error condition occurred.
