Log4net has lots of options and different ways it could be configured - these are notes written to myself so that I can get it working quickly.
1. Download log4net
2. Drop DLL in Bin folder
In the download package, there are various DLLs, usually you'll want the .net 2.0 release version at:
incubating-log4net-1.2.10\\log4net-1.2.10\\bin\\net\\2.0\\release ```If you have an ASP.NET [Web Application Project](http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa983474.aspx) (as opposed to an ASP.NET [Web Site](http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms227432.aspx)) then you'll also need to add a reference to the DLL. 3\. Add a Configurator line in the Global.asax There are various ways of telling Log4net to pick up its config. We're going to use the Xml Configurator that pulls config from a separate config file. Add this line of code to Application\_Start in the Global.asax:
void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
The XmlConfigurator.Configure() call above, tells Log4net to look for a certain key in appSettings. The key gives the name of the config file. So we add the correct appSetting entry to web.config, like this:
