Copy log4net.config when publishing ?
2009-03-13 09:38:59 GMT
I use log4net 1.2.10 within an ASP.NET 3.5 MVC RC2 project.
Thus I initialize log4net configuration in Global.asax.cs class by this code :
string filename = Server.MapPath("log4net.config");
This works. log4net.config defines the standard "log4net" XML tag and its content.
I have an issue when publishing my project using Visual Web Developper Express 2008, with the following options (translating...) :
- delete all files before publishing
- copy only required files for the application to run
log4net.config doesn't get copied (of course it is included in project).
I tried the following but to no avail :
- option 1 : set log4net.config file "copy to output dir" option to "always"
- option 2 : declare a log4net config section in Web.config as follows, but I don't like it (useless and cluttering).
<section name="log4net" type="log4net.Config.Log4NetConfigurationSectionHandler, log4net" />
I successfully use a config section in an external file in this project.
Thanks for any hint,
