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.
