My Plesk Panel is down, I try to start sw-cp-server but it fails with error:

~# /etc/init.d/sw-cp-server start
Starting control panels server...: 
(log.c.118) opening errorlog '/var/log/sw-cp-server/error_log' failed: No such file or directory 


Log file /var/log/sw-cp-server/error_log got deleted.


  1. Create log directory if it is missing:

    # mkdir /var/log/sw-cp-server
  2. Create missing log file:

    # touch /var/log/sw-cp-server/error_log
  3. Try to start Plesk Panel again:

    # /etc/init.d/sw-cp-server start
    Starting control panels server...
    [  OK  ]
