Why dont you ask the application people ?

As per my knowledge, I dont think there is any way to find out this.

Yes, if it was working earlier, probably you could get something useful in old apache logs.

Now if it is a custom application such as Plesk from, the developer may have obfuscated the code so you would want to check with the documentation from the software developer. Otherwise if it truly is in Apache you would need to check the httpd.conf file, or any includes within that file to find the host.

egrep 8080 /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

tcpdump can help with this (or any sniffer software).
