[Steem] [0.19.12] Logging problem and unexpected char 108 in log-appender

in utopian-io •  3 months ago

Project Information

Repository: https://github.com/steemit/steem
Project Name: Steem
Affected versions: 0.19.11/.12

Expected behavior

When enabled in the configuration file, the steemd process should allow logging to file.

Actual behavior

Logging to file is not happening. Upon starting steemd, an error is given:
Error parsing logging config. Parse Error:Unexpected char '108' in "log-appender"

Other related bugs:

  • steemd file logging isn't working in v0.19.11/.12 (it worked in 0.19.10).
  • cli_wallet says Logging RPC to file: logs/rpc/rpc.log but nothing is happening there.
  • Logging level is not obeyed, debug/warn/info all show the same things in the console log.

How to reproduce

Start or replay the steemd process. Check the console log for the error feedback.

Thank you for contributing to Utopian!

Outstanding work.

First of all I'd like to say that I like properly aged report. Not something that was just acknowledged a second ago, you submitted it 11 days prior to reporting it on Utopian, and you're involved in rolling out the fix.

And it's a major issue. Even critical. Saying logging is important is stating the obvious I think. It was +1 by multiple contributors. Nothing for me to do really but to score it, as I can't find any flaws in your reporting method, and I actually thought it was incredibly easy to understand.

Thank you for the awesome contribution. It's posts like yours that show the value of Utopian as a bug hunting force.
