I have successfully hosted my first .onion site on my Raspberry Pi by following this tutorial. For some reason I needed to stop running this site for a while. So I used this command
sudo /etc/init.d/tor stop to temporarily close this site and then I used
sudo /etc/init.d/tor startto start the website again. But it's not working and I'm not able to visit my .onion site again. I have tried restarting my Raspberry Pi and start again but still not working. I have also tried restarting lighttpd but still not working. I have also tried
sudo /etc/init.d/tor restart but still not working.
sudo /etc/init.d/tor status shows my hidden service is active. But I'm not able to visit it anymore.
