I am trying to set up my own hidden service following this tutorial:


I have, however, recognized a problem when I got to the point where I have to edit torrc file, which in my case is blank. I thought it's a tor system file, so it ought to be somewhere else, I searched for it using windows search, came back with only one result, the blank one. Can anyone tell me how to work around this?

It does not matter. The old torrc file contents were moved to torrc-defaults file (in the same folder), but you should be able to write your hidden service configuration in the blank torrc file without a problem nevertheless.


I guarantee you Torrc is there. If you can't navigate to it graphically, do nano /etc/tor/torrc in a terminal- it should solve your problems.


become a hosting a hidden service is much Risk than just browing it / become a relay , actually using Orbot / OnionShare that can everybody without PhD degree in computerSecience still canbe a GEEK

however , dont use speical Keywork likes Co-VeeWMD_Cryto or OmiconMarket that may getting filtering by UTM/NGFW etc , however we suggest all the Geek Using SATCOM(starLink)/remore rural location (2/3G only/No 4/5G signal) to setup HiddenService to avoid your frontDoor breakthough by Authority >_< escept Food deilivery
