Tor had been working fine for a while, but I modified the torrc file and tried to restart and now it will not start again. I removed the edit but now it still will not start. Terminal Output:
[root@EU1 ~]# /etc/init.d/tor status tor is not running [root@EU1 ~]# /etc/init.d/tor start Raising maximum number of filedescriptors (ulimit -n) to 16384. Starting tor: [ OK ] [root@EU1 ~]# /etc/init.d/tor status tor is not running [root@EU1 ~]#
Other Terminal Output:

Contents of my torrc file:
HiddenServiceDir /home/tor/www/.config/1 HiddenServicePort 80 127.0.0.1:3036
Any ideas why this could be?
