- Plesk Onyx 17.5 for Windows
- According to About Disk Space Usage Calculation the content of the following directories is excluded from the website content usage size:
- In Subscriptions > example.com > Statistics tab the Web usage value includes content of mentioned directories.
In fact "statistics" directory is not excluded from disk usage calculation by design, but Plesk documentation states that directory is excluded. This is a bug in Plesk documentation registered with ID PPPM-8082. It will be fixed in next documentation updates.
Background: In legacy Plesk versions (e.g. Plesk 10.x, Plesk 11.x) contents of statistics folder are not counted in disk usage while checkbox "log files" is unchecked on Tools & Settings > Server Statistics Settings page. In legacy versions "statistics" directory contains "logs" directory as sub-directory.
Many years have passed between Plesk 10.x and Plesk 17.x (6 years), business logic and folder structure has been noticeably changed and in current Plesk versions "logs" and "statistics" are separate directories, different pieces of data which are counted separately in disk usage.
