    1. C:\Program Files\XtenderSolutions\Content Management\Render Server\
  2. Open the configuration file and locate the <add key="EnableVerboseLog" value="false" /> node between <appSettings></appSettings>.
  3. Then change the value from false (figure 4) to true (figure 5).

It is not necessary to restart IIS, restart the website, or recycle the application pool. However, it is recommended that when you make changes to the web.config file that you restart the website to reflect the changes in real time.
*NOTE: IIS will see that the web.config file has changed and recycle the application pool automatically.
  1. Go to Services on the workstation.
  2. Find AppXtender Rendering Server.
  3. Right click on the service and select Restart.
Once the service has been restarted successfully. Logging will be enabled. The default location for the log is located at C:\temp\.
