I have my log4j.properties file as below:

<<<<<<<<<<<<<log4j.props file>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
log4j.rootLogger=info, stdout, R

log4j.appender.stdout=org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender
log4j.appender.stdout.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
# Pattern to output the caller's file name and line number.
#log4j.appender.stdout.layout.ConversionPattern=%d %-5p %c "%l" %x - %m%n
log4j.appender.stdout.layout.ConversionPattern=%d %-5p %c{2} %x - %m%n

# Set appender for log files
log4j.appender.R=org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender
log4j.appender.R.File=d:/tomcat-4/logs/myApp/myApp.log
log4j.appender.R.MaxFileSize=100KB
# Keep one backup file
log4j.appender.R.MaxBackupIndex=1

log4j.appender.R.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
#log4j.appender.R.layout.ConversionPattern=%d %-5p %c %l - %m%n
log4j.appender.R.layout.ConversionPattern=%d %-5p %c{2} - %m%n

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<ends here>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The directory and file name exists on the dev server.

The logging is working fine when I execute the code on Tomcat on my m/c. But when I push to dev server, it is not writting to myApp.log.

Appreciate help.
