If you installed from deb.torproject.org I assume you are using Tor
0.2.6.10, correct? (run # tor --version to check this).
Please explain once again what you did, I don't exactly understand.
Have you restored a hidden service for which you had backups of
private_key and hostname files? Or did you leave Tor to create a new
hidden service? What do you mean by 'set-up a directory in user's
If you have installed via apt, your datadirectory should be
/var/lib/tor, unless you didn't change it by modifying torrc. Do you
see there files like cached-microdesc-consensus, lock, state, etc.?
Also, the username who should run Tor on your system is debian-tor.
Please provide more details and torrc entries.
