To view the logs in Plesk, follow these steps:
The Logs page appears, showing the most recent activity.
By default the Logs page displays all of the available logs. Plesk provides different logs, depending on the platform. The IIS access log and the ModSecurity log for Windows are shown here.

You can filter logs by Date, visitor IP address, HTTP status code or HTTP message:
To filter by visitor IP address, type all or part of an IP address in the IP text box. When you type a partial IP address, log entries will be shown if any part of the IP address matches the entry. In the example below, 10. matches 10.1.1.1, but also matches 192.168.210.1.
To filter by HTTP status code, type all or part of a status code in the Code text box. When you type a partial code, log entries will be shown if any part of the status code matches the entry. In the example below, 5 matches all of the 5xx Server Error codes, but also matches codes 305 and 405.
To filter by HTTP message, type all or part of a message in the Message text box. When you type a partial text message, log entries will be shown if any part of the message matches the entry. In the example below, POST is followed by a space and a forward slash to help limit the filtered entries to POST messages. Without the space and forward slash, any entry that contains the string post would be included in the results.
