I am trying to setup my first onion site. I have followed the instructions and edited the torrc file. I have added below 2 lines

HiddenServiceDir C:\tor_service
HiddenServicePort 8080 localhost:8080/tor_service/

Then I saved it. Now, when I try to start tor browser, following pop up appears
tor unexpectedly exited
restart the application

I suggest adding a log line to your torrc, so it will write out what went wrong.

You can also ask Tor Browser to copy Tor's log to the clipboard, and then paste it somewhere to read.

In any case, this isn't a Tor bug, and this trac is for Tor bugs. I suggest you use the other contact avenues if you have future support questions. Thanks!
