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.
