Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-667) Logging level settings ignored in apachedsw.exe windows NT service frontend (apachedsw.exe)

Alex Karasulu commented on DIRSERVER-667:

Long Term Fix

The best way to fix this issue is to add the rolling log file appender to ApacheDS'
by default.   I could add some black magic into the daemon plugin to make the path to the
log file absolute and set by the installers but this is a real PITA.  The best would be to
set a relative path to this file so it dumps the file into the var/log directory.  We just
have to make the installer set the installation directory as the working directory for the
startup and shutdown apps.  This is not hard to do for windows.  We just need to setup these
parameters in the inno installation script.

Unix on the other hand needs to have a similar mechanism but this can be done.  Worst case
logs are dumped somewhere you don't want it to go.  But at least you got them.
