I am trying to setup a log file to send variables to it, but nothing i do is working, please can you help, i have read all i can and tried multiple solutions and still nothing, heres what i have: -


ini_set("display_errors", 1);
ini_set("log_errors", "On");
ini_set("error_log", "log/silverstripe.log");

SS_Log::add_writer(new SS_LogFileWriter('log/silverstripe.log'), SS_Log::WARN, '>');

php class :-

public function messageTest(){
SS_Log::log("Message Log test", SS_Log::WARN);

The log folder is already there but the log itself isnt being created, although when an actual php warning occurs then the log is updated.

Thanks in advance for your help

you might change '>' to '<=', or something else similar as I think that looks wrong.

Thank you for your suggestion, unfortunately that was on the long list of things i have tried.

I got the suspicsion that it something else that is causing the problem, in the end the only way to fix it was to re build the project, i am using the same code and it works, not sure im going to get to the bottom of this one
