	ILoggerRepository repository,
	FileInfo configFile


Type: log4net.RepositoryILoggerRepository
The repository to configure.
Type: System.IOFileInfo
The XML file to load the configuration from.

DOMConfigurator is obsolete. Use XmlConfigurator instead of DOMConfigurator.

The configuration file must be valid XML. It must contain at least one element called log4net that holds the configuration data.

The configuration file will be monitored using a FileSystemWatcher and depends on the behavior of that class.

For more information on how to configure log4net using a separate configuration file, see [M:Configure(FileInfo)].
