Thanks Ross, that's it logging now.

Unfortunately it's only using the appenders as specified in the root element, even though
I'm trying to access it by "MyLogger" name. So I presume MyLogger isn't registered with the
default repository? Should I therefore create a new repository with MyLogger name in order
to use that Logger?

Also is there some documentation that shows all the configuration elements? I looked at the
SDK but I couldn't find it.

Thanks again for all your help.

I think it depends on the log4net section handler you're using.  That overload of configure
has specifies that the configuration must use the Log4NetConfigurationSectionHandler.  See:


for more information.

Alternatively, you could try the following in your code:

log4net.Config.XmlConfigurator.Configure(new FileInfo(AppDomain.CurrentDomain.SetupInformation.ConfigurationFile));

Hi Wolfgang,

Thanks for your quick response.

I've added this to the code now:

            if (!_defaultLog.Logger.Repository.Configured)




But the repository is still appearing as unconfigured and still no appenders. I've even tried
doing a default XmlConfigurator.Configure(); before GetLogger() call. Is that the right way
of calling the Configure() method?

Do you have a


Or one of the other possibilities to configure log4net somewhere in your code ?

Subject: No appenders found

Hello all,

I'm new to log4net, so sorry for the really basic question!

I've added this to the web.config of my site:

        <section name="log4net" type="log4net.Config.Log4NetConfigurationSectionHandler,
log4net" />



        <appender name="EventLogAppender" type="log4net.Appender.EventLogAppender" >

            <applicationName value="LoggingTest" />

            <layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout">

                <conversionPattern value="%date [%thread] %-5level %logger [%property{NDC}]
- %message%newline" />



        <appender name="RollingFileAppender" type="log4net.Appender.RollingFileAppender">

            <file value="logfile" />

            <appendToFile value="true" />

            <rollingStyle value="Composite" />

            <datePattern value="yyyyMMdd" />

            <maxSizeRollBackups value="10" />

            <maximumFileSize value="1MB" />

            <layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout">

                <conversionPattern value="%date [%thread] %-5level %logger [%property{NDC}]
- %message%newline" />



        <appender name="SmtpAppender" type="log4net.Appender.SmtpAppender,log4net">

            <to value="test@test.com<mailto:test@test.com>" />

            <from value="from@from.com<mailto:from@from.com>" />

            <subject value=" Warning" />

            <smtpHost value="mail-relay.company.co.uk<http://mail-relay.company.co.uk>"

            <bufferSize value="512" />

            <lossy value="false" />

            <evaluator type="log4net.Core.LevelEvaluator,log4net">

                <threshold value="WARN" />


            <layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout,log4net">

                <conversionPattern value="%property{log4net:HostName} :: %level :: %message
%newlineLogger: %logger%newlineThread: %thread%newlineDate: %date%newlineNDC: %property{NDC}%newline%newline"



        <!-- Set root logger level to DEBUG and its only appender to A1 -->


            <level value="DEBUG" />

            <appender-ref ref="RollingFileAppender" />


        <logger name="MyLogger">

            <level value="WARN" />

            <appender-ref ref="EventLogAppender" />

            <appender-ref ref="SmtpAppender" />

            <appender-ref ref="RollingFileAppender" />



And in my code I have this:

        private static ILog _defaultLog;


            _defaultLog = log4net.LogManager.GetLogger("MyLogger");


However nothing gets written to event log, file or smtp. While debugging there doesn't seem
to be any appenders to the repository. So I'm presuming I haven't set up my configuration
properly. Unfortunately I can't see where I'm going wrong - can you see where I'm going wrong?

Thanks in advance.
