The logger is initialized once per app-domain, so as long as you do it
at the start of the app you're good. And what's the start of the app for
a web site? Global.asax. Here's what we do:

In Global.asax:

//Log4Net logger, can be initialized like normal since we need to
configure log4net first. That's done below.
static log4net.ILog log;

protected void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
	#region Bootstrap log4net
	string configFile = Server.MapPath("~/log4net.config");
	log4net.Config.XmlConfigurator.ConfigureAndWatch(new
System.IO.FileInfo(configFile));

	log = log4net.LogManager.GetLogger(
	
System.Reflection.MethodBase.GetCurrentMethod().DeclaringType
		);

	log.Info("----------------------");
	log.Info("Application Starting... Good morning.");
	log.InfoFormat("Watching '{0}'", configFile);
	log.Info("Application Active.");
	log.Info("--");
	#endregion
}
protected void Application_End(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
	log.Info("Application Ending... Goodnight.");
}


And is a normal file, either an aspx.cs, or a file just in a data-layer
DLL we simply do:

#region Log4Net
static readonly log4net.ILog log
   =log4net.LogManager.GetLogger(
      System.Reflection.MethodBase.GetCurrentMethod().DeclaringType
    );
#endregion


And it all works fine.

Have you tried to configure log4net once at the highest level when the
application starts?

intantiate once and use thru out my tiers? if so, what's the best way to
