This question already has an answer here:
On Debian, installed Tor just by going to the website and downloading, extracting whole Tor browser directory to /home/joe/ etc. It renders fine, I've created my hidden service (got the new host name file--URL etc), but my new hidden url does not render. Tor doc says look in logs, cannot find any Tor logs on debian. Cannot find any logs, no vidalia. Without logs, tough to troubleshoot. what is command to add logging for debian?
