I am unable to find the reason why log4net is not writing anything to log file. the below is the configuration I have used.
<log4net debug="true">
<appender name="RollingLogFileAppender" type="log4net.Appender.RollingFileAppender">
	<file value="Log/TestLog.txt" />
	<appendToFile value="true" />
	<rollingStyle value="Size" />
	<maxSizeRollBackups value="10" />
	<maximumFileSize value="2KB" />
	<staticLogFileName value="true" />
<layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout">
	<conversionPattern value="%-5p %d %5rms %-22.22c{1} %-18.18M - %m%n" />
			<level value="DEBUG" />
			<appender-ref ref="RollingLogFileAppender" />

But the same is working fine when i gives the path like this ..
<file value="C:\\TestProj\\TestLog.txt" />

Can anyone help me on this?

That works for me. Where are you looking for the log file?

How to get write permission?

Check if your application has write permissions on destination folder for log file.
