Umm, perhaps the file name pattern should use backslashes?

	<param name="File"

Subject: Failed to rename log file


I am using Log4Cxx on Windows. I always get the following error 

Failed to rename [C:\app-name/logs/event-handler.log] to

Due to this error, in order to continue writing log, Log4Cxx overwrites
the old log file. Thus I lose the old log.

I am using DailyRollingFileAppender and my config file is as given below

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE log4j:configuration SYSTEM "./log4j.dtd">

<log4j:configuration xmlns:log4j="http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/"
	<appender name="APP_LOGFILE"
		<param name="File"
		<param name="Append" value="true"/>
		<param name="Threshold" value="warn"/>

		<!-- Rollover at midnight each day -->
		<!--<param name="DatePattern" value="yyyy-MM-dd"/> Does
not work-->

		<param name="MaxFileSize" value="25MB" />
		<param name="MaxBackupIndex" value="10" />
		<layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">
			<param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d %-5p
[%c{1}] %m%n"/>
