I have IIS 6 on Windows 2003 Server.  Logging is turned on for the website and configured to write logs to C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles\W3SVC1 folder.  Logs are scheduled for hourly writes.

The logs are not getting written.

No entries in the Application or System event logs indicating any trouble.
The site is used.
What could be wrong?

check if system account has full control on C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles

Yes it does and did.  To isolate security from the equation, i moved the log folder to a location where all my applications (including IIS applications) write logs using Log4net.  I even loosened security to that folder allowing "users" read/write/execute/modify. Still nothing.

To clarify:  "System" has full control over that folder.

Are you sure Enable Logging is checked in the properties of the site?
IIS write its log in chunks; if you access the site, and then you reset IIS, it should dump the log to disk, can you try that?

Logging is enabled.  Log file configured to be written in 1 hour chunks.  Lots of activity on the site.  Still no log files.

I deleted the web site and created a new web site.  Now logging works.  Thanks for your ideas!
