Hi All,
I am a solaris sys admin and, was told to use log4j to rotate catalina.out every night. although it seems easy but, I am very frustrated and confused. I hope you experts can help me out. Here is what I have in my /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.25/common/classes directory

ppender.log4j.properites.modified appender.log4j.properties log4j.properties

attached is the content of my log4j.properties (I just post what is not commented). I had to change the filename in order to be able to attach my file.



Maybe I do not understand fully what I have setup. I really appreciate your help on this.

thanks
