I am already confused. Are you an exit node on port 80, or are you a
hidden service, or are you both? Your exit policy has nothing to do with
being a hidden service, and whether you're a Tor server also has nothing

If you're a Tor server, please don't restrict outbound ports at all.

Also, the earlier log messages may give you better hints about what's
going wrong.
