Subject: Re: no log file is created

 

Samuel,

 

I have not found an easy way to troubleshoot problems with Log4Net. I had issues in the past
with it but the only real way was to step into the application's code and see where it was
failing and what error was hopefully throwing. However, I must said that in the exact way
as you, this was not the case many times as Log4Net decided to die silently without any notifications
to event log or anything like it. That would be nice to have so we get some feedback but I
have not found a way to do so yet. If you know let me know. 

 

The only thing that I could think of is right permissions to the folder. The ASP.NET impersonation
needs to have read/write access to this physical folder (Windows Explorer). 

 

Other than that, I am afraid I do not have more to add.

 

Alvaro

Dear Alvaro, 

I've changed my config according to yours but I still can't log. How could I try to troubleshoot?

I believe my app has rights to write files. But I still have the log problem, no log file
