Before marking as out-of-date, please check current release at

Upstream releases unconventionally: the new version is pushed to users via the ZeroNet network before that version is actually released (if you care, then please tell upstream this is not a good approach). If you want the very latest version, use the VCS package: zeronet-git

@SamuraiJack: these are shown in the install messages, but there was a bug in Tor < that broke permissions on the data dir:

For error "Tor Error: Status: Error ([Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/lib/tor/control_auth_cookie')" Append to your /etc/tor/torrc file:

CupIvan commented on 2018-06-04 06:45

clear tor version ">=" from optdepends becouse of make package error

maybe this is because they use docker ?

ControlPort 9051 is missing from torrc, zeronet can't connect to tor without it, I updated the zeronet arch wiki page, maybe you could update the .install warnings to reflect this?

@sirex, @skypher: added creation of /var/log/zeronet. Sorry. Should be fixed now.

When i tried to `systemctl start zeronet`, got this in `journalctl -xe`:

ERROR:root:Unhandled exception: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/log/zeronet'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 18, in main
import main
File "/opt/zeronet/src/", line 32, in <module>
OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/log/zeronet'
- Starting ZeroNet...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 91, in <module>
File "", line 64, in main
traceback.print_exc(file=open(config.log_dir + "/error.log", "a"))
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/var/log/zeronet/error.log'

In order to fix that I did:

sudo mkdir /var/log/zeronet && sudo chown zeronet:zeronet /var/log/zeronet
