I have workling/starling setup and working for both production and
development to send a welcome email after a user signs up.

However, in the production environment, it refuses to output to the log
file production.log, however in development environment, everything
outputs fine in development.log

I have the workling_client started as the same uid and gid as the
application and made sure it has the same permission as the
production.log file.

Has anyone else experienced this before?

Finally figured this out, and posting it incase anyone else runs into
this issue.

It has to do with logger buffers everything sent to is and does not auto
flush in production environment.

So a quick fix is to call logger.flush whenever the worker completes,
probably a better way to do this by putting it in some after filter, but
not sure if workling has such a filter...

thank you so much for this info.  I have posted this quation twice and
not received a response.

Tried it and it is the solution.

It has been irritating me for a while, but I just haven't had time to
investigate it.

Many thanks

Thanks for posting this.  It really should be explained in the
Workling documentation.
