Hi all,

I have a function that creates a new file for logging: Here is a snippet of the code:

//logpath contains the DIRECT link to the folder in which the file to be saved
<cffile action="append" file="#logPath#" output="#content#" addnewline="yes">

Now, this code was working and the after some more testing (i deleted the file to ensure coldfusion would create the new file again) AND then this an error occured saying the file cannot be found. But isnt it supposed to create it?

Your help is greatly appreciated,

you have the action attribute set to "append" so it will look for the file, if it's not found it'll toss an error, you'd have to change the action attib to "write" for it to create a new file

you could do something like this...

<cfif fileExists(logPath)>
      <cffile action="append" file="#logPath#" output="#content#" addnewline="yes">
<cfelse>
      <cffile action="write" file="#logPath#" output="#content#">
</cfif>

Hi trailblazzyr55,

The CFFILE action="append" will create a file, if the file doest not already exist.

The actual problem with my code was that the value of the direct link was actually not valid, eg i had c:/websites file/wwwroot/etc.. rather than c:/websites/wwwroot/etc.

I have fixed the issue now.
