Hi;

I have the following log segment in my web.config:

<log4net>
    <appender name="A1" type="log4net.Appender.RollingFileAppender" >
      <file value="logs/jazz.log" />
      <appendToFile value="true" />
      <rollingStyle value="Size" />
      <maxSizeRollBackups value="10" />
      <maximumFileSize value="10MB" />
      <staticLogFileName value="true" />
      <layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout">
        <conversionPattern value="%d [%t] %-5p %c - %m%n" />
      </layout>
    </appender>
    <root>
      <level value="ALL" />
      <appender-ref ref="A1" />
    </root>
  </log4net>

Open in new window


I changed log level to ALL from but it's not logging anything. But the log lines are invoked during the debug. Logs directory is there but jazz.log is empty. What would be the reason?

Regards.

Does your log4net have rights to that folder?

Hi guys;

Yes, everyone has full rights on the given folder.

  <configSections>
    <section name="log4net" type="log4net.Config.Log4NetConfigurationSectionHandler, log4net" />
  </configSections>

Open in new window


No, I don't call, XmlConfigurator.Configure before logging. Where to call? I don't have AssemblyInfo.cs in my asp.net web application.

Regards.
