Hi, I started using Privoxy 3.0.21 in Windows 8 a couple of days ago and I noticed that the log file is empty, although was enabled (uncommented) by default in the config.txt file. I have granted writing permissions to the installation folder and file itself. The logdir was set by default to "." .
The following options were given in the config file:
user-manual ./doc/user-manual/
confdir .
logdir .
actionsfile match-all.action
actionsfile default.action
actionsfile user.action
filterfile default.filter
filterfile user.filter
logfile privoxy.log
listen-address 127.0.0.1:8118

    This is designed behaviour. In order for Privoxy to log entries you need to enable one or more of the 'debug' directives in the config file.
