Starting on October 19, 2021, we will enable single-sign-on for our Plesk Support Center to provide a seamless login/account experience. This implies that you’ll be able to use a single account across any of our web-facing properties.
To be prepared for this change and to avoid the need to register during your next ticket submission after the change, we encourage you to create an account here before October 19 using the same email address as your current Zendesk login (support account). It’s essential that you use the same email address on our support center to ensure that your tickets stay attached to the same account. You will continue to use ZenDesk authentication until we switch over to single-sign-on on October 19th.

Server with Plesk runs out of the space because of PHP-FPM logs

    Of course, it would be a good idea to have a look at what exactly produces so many log entries, and fix the cause and not just the symptom.

    Today a customer caused to cash my server generating 80 GB log files within a very short time. The entire disk was full and as you may noticed, nothing worked after that for several hours...

    Please restrict log files in the next versions, because a single user can take down a plesk server, spaming log files until the disk is full.

    Very useless that plesk checks it once per day... If the disk is full after 1 hour, plesk doesn't even work anymore and the full server is down.

    Hello Maximilian,

    I would like to say that this period is linked to the fact the rotation is performed during the daily task, alongside many other operations.
    However, the rotation might be adjusted to execute this specific operation more frequently, as described in the "Workaround" section.

    I got it thanks. In general this could be a serious exploit for plesk. When you create a php while loop which produces errors the whole time, your log files will continue to take down the server within minutes by filling up the disc space to maximum. A bad attacker (customer) could easily exploit this. I know it's not common, but you never know. ;)
