log4j:ERROR Either File or DatePattern options are not set for appender [File].

 

 

I created /var/log/alfresco, changed log4j.properties in /webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/log4j.properties and in shared/classes/alfresco/extension/custom-log4j.properties:

log4j.appender.File.File=/var/log/alfresco/alfresco.log

I see alfresco.log created in /var/log/alfresco/ but there is stil an error in catalina.out
