Appending the log file using logging

I have written a code to do something. I have started a log also but when ever i start the program, the log files are not appending instead starting fresh. How can i append the log every time i start the script.

My code is as follows[Only the relevant section]:

import paramiko
import logging
from logging.config import fileConfig

paramiko.util.log_to_file("VersionScanner" + '.log')
logging.basicConfig(filename='VersionScanner.log', level=logging.DEBUG)

I am using both paramiko [ssh level logs ] and logging for application logging. Is there any way like using 'a' for appending here?

It seems paramiko is at fault here. The specific line is this one :f = open(filename, 'w').

In order to go around this, you should declare a logger with the name paramiko and give it the desired configuration.
