I'm setting up a relay on Ubuntu 14.04 using the instructions here: https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en#ubuntu.
My config is super small and basic:
ORPort 9050 DirPort 9030 RelayBandwidthRate 770 KB RelayBandwidthBurst 1540 KB Nickname coolrelaynamedawg ContactInfo David <firstname.lastname@example.org> AccountingMax 1999 GB AccountingStart month 1 12:00 ExitPolicy reject *:*
When I edited /etc/tor/torrc with the aforementioned config and ran
sudo service tor restart I got:
Could not bind to 0.0.0.0:9050. Address already in use. Is Tor already running?
ps aux | grep tor doesn't show that the Tor process is running.
This server is a fresh DigitalOcean Ubuntu VPS and doesn't have a web server or anything installed. Any ideas what could be happening?
