stop server.log getting clearedoff on restarts

Hi,

Can someone please tell with me to stop the JBOSS clearing the server.log file on every restarts.
Basically I want the old loggings in the server.log file also to be present when the server is restarted.
Is there any configuration change in JBOSS, which can retain the old log information in the server.log file, whenever its restarted?

Regards,
Nainar

There's a log4j.xml (or jboss-log4j.xml depending on the version of JBoss you are using) under %JBOSS_HOME%/server/xxx/conf folder where you can set the "Append" attribute of the appender named "FILE" to true. By default the "Append" is set to false
