Do you by any chance have any logging related values set in config/environments/production.rb ?

If you haven’t made any changes, the default should be:

config.log_level = :info
RAILS_DEFAULT_LOGGER ='log/production.log')

Make sure you haven’t used SyslogLogger as that will log to the OS syslog, not a separate Rails app log, and your application won’t find it. If your logging goes to syslog, the values would look like :

config.log_level = :info

in my rails app, when i am trying to upload a photo, it is showing the following errors. Postfeaturedimage Failed to manipulate with MiniMagick, maybe it is not an image? Original Error: You must have ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick installed

should i add this question in a new question? thank you @Kdimitrov
