I'm running OSX 10.7 and following the instructions linked below am failing to start hidden services.
I keep getting this error: "Error creating directory ...". It's either No such file or directory (you bet ya there is) or it's "Permission Denied," if I try to put them where the the tutorial suggests
On windows C:/hidden_service seemed to do the trick just fine. I've tried moving it around, tried it with and without the ~ (such as ~/Documents etc). It can't seem to find the folders. I first tried moving it to Applications (which shouldn't matter if you run it as super user right?) but it didn't work. It just doesn't seem to "see" any folders
I've launched the Vidalia app as superuser, chmodded all folders and files to 777...
The way I understand the instructions, Vidalia will CREATE the /hidden_service/ folder for you. I've tried it with both being there and not - same result.
What is happening and can someone point to a solution?
PS: As a clarification, it will place files there identifying the hidden service address and some miscellaneous connection data. The issue appears to be Vidalia's inability to access the filesystem (unless the permission is denied, then it can suddenly "see" it)
