    make sure you did not miss a step:

    1. install Advanced Logging module
    2. enable Advanced logging module (open Advanced logging feature on server level, from Actions pane on the right cllick Enable Advanced Logging
    3. Configure the log directory: on server or application level, open the feature, from Actions pane on the right click "edit Log Directory", make sure the logdirectory exists and privilieges are configured appropriatly
    4. create a log definition and make sure you have at least 1 logdefinition 'enabled'

    There is a nice walktrough that explains each step in more detail: 


    If it still does not work, do you get any events in eventlog?

    Thanks... I was looking to enable by clicking advanced logging from websites, not the server level of IIS... sheesh

    thanks again
