Hi Celeb,

To my understanding for some reason one cannot stop a tor service using
GNU Shepherd. When I need to restart, I kill the tor process using `kill
<PID>`, and only then run `herd restart tor`.

Apparently, tor is running. It tends to happen to me after reconnecting
to the Internet that I cannot use tor, anymore, although the process is
still running. I need to perform the above procedure to make it usable

Not sure if that addresses your problem, but you can try this poor-man’s
