Hi Oliver,

Sorry for not providing you with information about my configuration. But your guess was right: I´m using paster with the config.ini-file and used the log_conf option.

I´ve included the content from log_deploy.ini in the config.ini-file now, but I get the following error when trying to start with this configuration:
ConfigParser.InterpolationMissingOptionError: Bad value substitution:
        section: [handler_mapproxy]
        option : args
        key    : here
        rawval : (r"%(here)s/../var/proxy.log", "a")

Do you know what the reason for this could be. The same log-config was working fine for the singleapp-config (I haven´t changed anything).

Best regards and thanks for the help
Max Stephan

I was wondering why it didn´t log anything, switched back to the "Single-Mapproxy" and then everything was logged as expected again. Is this a known bug? I´ve upgraded to Mapproxy 1.2.1 but the same bug occurred when using 1.1.1.

I have to guess if you don't provide any information about your configuration.

You are using paster and you use the log_conf option in you [app:main] section? That option is not available for MultiMapProxy, but you can add the content of your logging configuration to the paster .ini file.
