First: Thank you all for building this awesome community. I'm learning a lot.

I've installed privoxy 3.0.26 in a docker container on a Debian server and set the log level in /etc/privoxy/config to 1024. But privoxy doesn't seem to log any traffic. Browsers are definitely using the proxy, since I can see http://config.privoxy.org/show-status.

I also created the privoxy.log file and set permissions to everyone, just to be sure it's not a permission issue:

-rwxrwxrwx    1 privoxy  privoxy          5 Jan  1 15:00 privoxy.log

cat privoxy.log:


privoxy config:

Privoxy was invoked as follows:

privoxy --no-daemon --user privoxy /etc/privoxy/config 

Blocking Statistics:

5 out of 73 requests have been blocked, which equals a block rate of 6.85%. 

Docker image is splazit/privoxy-alpine.
