Subject RE: log files get reset at 12:00 noon every day
Date Sun, 30 Oct 2005 23:28:40 GMT
Simon,

There have been a number of fixes to the File & RollingFile appenders
since 1.2.8. If you cannot upgrade the latest version you may want to
consider taking the latest source for 2 appenders, back porting them
where necessary, and building them into a new dll. You could then uses
these appenders with the old 1.2.8 build of log4net, just specify the
assembly qualified type name in the logging configuration.

Cheers,
Nicko
