privoxy trouble


I have recently installed privoxy. When I try to run it I get this error:

$ /usr/local/sbin/privoxy
Aug 10 00:47:59.955 Privoxy(b7efa6c0) Info: Privoxy version 3.0.8
Aug 10 00:47:59.955 Privoxy(b7efa6c0) Info: Program name: /usr/local/sbin/privoxy
Aug 10 00:47:59.967 Privoxy(b7efa6c0) Info: No logfile configured. Please enable it before reporting any problems.

I do not know how to enable the logfile. By default, there is no logfile in the directory /var/log/privoxy, where the config file says the the logs will be stored. Creating a blank file, "logfile," does not work.

Any suggestions? Thanks.
