You are making a directory that even root can't cd into. By default, FreeBSD's tor and tor-devel port want to store logs inside /var/log/tor/ regardless of what you put in the /usr/local/etc/tor/torrc file last I looked. This is step-by-step just to illustrate what you're actually doing. mkdir /var/log/tor; chown _tor:_tor /var/log/tor; mkdir chmod 700 /var/log/tor; touch /var/log/tor/tor.log; chmod 600 /var/log/tor/tor.log; g -- 5F77 765E 40D6 5340 A0F5 3401 4997 FF11 A86F 44E2
