Subject roller doesn't roll
Date Thu, 23 Mar 2006 16:01:11 GMT
I've got several apps using a RollingFileAppender, but one keeps 
overwriting the first file instead of rolling over to .1, .2, .3, etc.  
He is a web app running under Tomcat, and this is how he is configured:

log4j-1.2.9.jar is in /WEB-INF/classes of the webapp
config file is in /WEB-INF/classes/com/weycogroup/...
PropertyConfigurator is called in a ServletContextListener

this is his config file:

log4j.rootCategory=INFO, roller

log4j.appender.roller=org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender
log4j.appender.roller.File=/var/log/xxxxx.log

log4j.appender.roller.MaxFileSize=10240KB
log4j.appender.roller.MaxBackupIndex=10

log4j.appender.roller.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.roller.layout.ConversionPattern=%d{yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss} 
%-5p %c{1} %M:%L %m%n

I created all eleven files in /var/log and gave Tomcat permission to 
write to them.  Logging works normally except for the roller not 
rolling.  What have I done wrong?
