there is no need to reinstall the relay

you didn't say what OS you use but since you mentioned apt-get you are probably running debian or ubuntu.
In that case you might want to use the Torproject's Debian packages.

Setup instructions can be found here:


Using that repo will give you tor (which is currently recommended)

simply copy the entire "keys" folder in your DataDirectory and make sure the filesystem permissions
are set properly and you should be fine.
