Re: debug.log

Thanks, I thought that the debug level was only for errors. Would commenting out all the logging levels then cause no logging to occur at all? Is that probably the best way to run the tor server, or should I have some sort of error logging in place?

The "debug" setting is by far the most verbose.  Of course it will fill
your hard drive quickly!  If you want to run Tor for days, I recommend
choosing a less verbose option and not logging at level "debug" at all.
