    I am new to Virtuozzo. I know where to find my web site logs in Plesk, but was told I could find logs for SSH and FTP using the Virtuozzo file manager at: /var/log/secure. But, when I open file manager, /var is not listed. I assume it is under another subdirectory, but can't find it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello David,

    Could it be that "/var" is on a second page of the listing? If I recall correctly all root directories do not fit in the first page, and "var" is among those that go to the second page. Look for the page navigation at the bottom of the file manager.

    Now that makes me feel stupid...but I will ignore the embarrassment since you were right :) It was very helpful as I am seeing a large number of hack attempts on SSH and that allowed me to take action to shut down SSH completely.

    I've answered this one fast enough only because I've been through this problem myself. You wouldn't want to know how deep debugging went until I realized there was a second page...

    Glad to hear it helped :)
