I have added Log4Net in my project using NuGet Package Manager and it is showing Version 2.3 installed on my system.
Here is my config entry:
<configSections> <section name="dataConfiguration" type="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Data.Configuration.DatabaseSettings, Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Data, Version=126.96.36.199, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"/> <section name="log4net" type="log4net.Config.Log4NetConfigurationSectionHandler, log4net" /> </configSections>
and then reference to this file here
<log4net configSource="Log4Net.config" /> <system.serviceModel>
but when I run the website. The following exception is displayed.
Could not load file or assembly 'log4net, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1b44e1d426115821' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)

I have seen the dll is present in the bin folder but is showing version 220.127.116.11 instead.
How can I change the assembly version?
It seems that one of the projects in your solution or maybe some 3rd party dll has been built with different version of log4net. Either you update references to log4net in all projects (with 3rd party dlls this will not help) or you could add assembly redirection setting to the web.config (app.config) that will redirect specified version/versions of log4net to new one.
Put this section to your web.config (app.config) anywhere under configuration element
<runtime> <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1"> <dependentAssembly> <assemblyIdentity name="log4net" publicKeyToken="1b44e1d426115821" culture="neutral" /> <bindingRedirect oldVersion="18.104.22.168" newVersion="22.214.171.124"/> </dependentAssembly> </assemblyBinding> </runtime>
