Anyone? coopster msg:3201883 4:49 pm on Dec 28, 2006 (gmt 0)
I believe you can only delete processed log files from the Plesk control panel.
What is it you truly want to do? I don't delete my log files as Apache is just going to recreate them for me. If I want to clear an error log file or something I just open a shell session (SSH) and run a command to clear out the entries.

Just want to get rid of the log files. They are taking up round 47GB's of space. coopster msg:3202446 2:58 am on Dec 29, 2006 (gmt 0)
Well, as I said, I believe the only log files you can delete via a Plesk control panel are processed log files. You could turn on rotation and remove your processed log files.
Otherwise, if you have command line access you can use one of the
suggested methods from Apache [ httpd.apache.org]. Discovery msg:3205503 8:12 am on Jan 2, 2007 (gmt 0)
