Error on overriding ConfigureLogging bootstrap class

Posted 3 years ago by aspiresuvedi

While trying to implement logentries on L5, I tried to override ConfigureLogging class. Firstly , I override the $bootstrappers property of HttpKernel in Kernel class. using

protected $bootstrappers = [

My App\Bootstrap\ConfigureLogging class to implement logentries looks like

<?php namespace App\Bootstrap;

use Illuminate\Log\Writer;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Foundation\Application;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Bootstrap\ConfigureLogging as BaseConfigureLogging;
use Monolog\Handler\LogEntriesHandler;

class ConfigureLogging extends BaseConfigureLogging {

     * Custom Monolog handler that for Logentries.
     * @param  \Illuminate\Contracts\Foundation\Application  $app
     * @param  \Illuminate\Log\Writer  $log
     * @return void
    protected function configureCustomHandler(Application $app, Writer $log)
        $logentriesHandler = new LogEntriesHandler(getenv('LOGENTRIES_TOKEN'));
        // Also Log to Dayily files too.
        $log->useDailyFiles($app->storagePath().'/logs/laravel.log', 5);


But it throws error like this

Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'ReflectionException' with message 'Class log does not exist' in /var/www/project/vendor/laravel/framework/src/Illuminate/Container/Container.php
