    localhost_access_log files not being written to jlog directory


    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care


    Problem Symptoms:
    localhost_access_log files are not being written to the /exlibris/aleph/a2n_n/ng/aleph/home/system/thirdparty/openserver/server/default/log/ directory (the "jlog" directory) .

    The jlog directory has server.log.xxxx files but no localhost_access_log.yyyy-mm-dd files.


    JBoss was upgraded, and a default change was made to the /exlibris/aleph/a2n_n/ng/aleph/home/system/thirdparty/openserver/server/default/deploy/jbossweb.sar/server.xml file to turn this off.


    1. Enter the command "jdeploy" to get to the deploy directory:
    > jdeploy
    > cd jbossweb.sar

    2. Save the existing server.xml file:
    > cp -p server.xml server.xml.beforechange

    3. Edit the server.xml file:
    > vi server.xml

    Uncomment the "org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve" line: 

    <!-- Access logger -->
    <!-- <--- delete this begin-comment line
    <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve"
    prefix="localhost_access_log." suffix=".log"
    pattern="common" directory="${jboss.server.log.dir}"
    resolveHosts="false" />
    --> <--- delete this end-comment line

    4. Restart jboss.
