Hi everyone! I’m trying to setup an onion service on Whonix and I’ve just completed this guide (Onion Services - Whonix) and have couple of questions.
Since we only edit the
/usr/local/etc/torrc.d/50_user.conf file on the Gateway, but install the web server on the Workstation, how does this line
HiddenServiceDir /var/lib/tor/hidden_service/ in the Tor configuration does anything, when the website is (presumably) stored in a folder in the Workstation, where the server is?
Also, how can I install mysql to have a database for the website as well?
