@Slychocobo If Pi-hole is not blocking the query then it is most likely not the issue. When you replaced Pi-hole, did you use the same upstream DNS servers that it was using?

@Patrik-svobodik
@Mcat12 just the command from the GitHub, the error is known to happen but it "was solved" yet it still happens
Mark Drobnak
@Mcat12
We need the full commands you are running and the output to debug further.

@Patrik-svobodik
I just ran the installation script from GitHub (readme)
and then it gave me that error, I will give you the log of the console, gimme a sec

Hi, I've just ran through updating my PiHole to the latest release, I'm slightly confused. dnsmasq is no longer a requirement as pihole-FTL handles this internally. Why does the file /etc/dnsmasq.d/01-pihole.conf still contain the configuration? should this not now live in /etc/pihole as it's self contained otherwise?
I have a custom setup where I'm fowarding to a local bind installation on a custom port, and I don't like to cache at the Pi-hole leve, I let bind handle caching. So I've been using ansible to update /etc/dnsmasq.d/01-pihole.conf to update cache-size to 0.
I figured this would no longer be required, but found that pihole-FTL is reading that file still.
Mark Drobnak
@Mcat12
Dnsmasq is now a part of FTL. It does not run separately.

heyoni if i wanted to run pihole and a vpn together, should i get 1, 2 or 4gb of ram on the new raspberry pi's?
Mark Drobnak
@Mcat12
You can use the 1 GB version. Pi-hole can run on any version of the Raspberry Pi, and a VPN will not require an extra GB of RAM.

i ran this "curl -sSL https://install.pi-hole.net | bash" and it seems to complete successfully, but when i go to the ip/admin, it says connection refused

thats how it ended. it didnt say anything about success
or error
Mark Drobnak
@Mcat12
If you are using Buster (latest Raspbian), that is not supported yet: pi-hole/pi-hole#2557
matrixbot
@matrixbot
heyoni Mark Drobnak (Gitter): Thanks Mark! I ended up getting a 4gb one so I can use it for a bunch of other things, like a backup server :)
azizLIGHT
@azizLIGHT
@Mcat12 ah ok.. thats the reason
because i just tried it again on a fresh raspbian buster install and it died same place
welp, youre gonna get a lot of messages about this now that buster is actually released
Thomas L. Kjeldsen
@tlk
@azizLIGHT I ended up in the same situation with a broken install and shared some notes on how I fixed it: https://github.com/pi-hole/pi-hole/issues/2813#issuecomment-506139372
it looks like the remediating PR needs just one more reviewer approval
Spokehedz
@Spokehedz
Blahhh...
It broke again. Updates don't work. I think I might just have to "reflash back to stock" and update again.
Mark Drobnak
@Mcat12
We're going to need a lot more information to troubleshoot than "Updates don't work"

Hi! I'm new to Pi-Hole. Thanks for it. Is awesome! :-)

So, because I'm new, I don't understand why those request are not cached... :-?
Anyone could explain, please?
Mark Drobnak
@Mcat12
Each domain has a TTL (Time To Live) which specifies how long the record is valid. Once the record is invalid, it can no longer be cached. Try querying that domain multiple times within a minute, then it should be cached.
Antonio Pérez
@skarcha
Ops! Yes. Checked with dig. 600 seconds of TTL. Thanks! :-)

Room is still open. There are several channels of support and granted, this is not that active. Please point support requests on our official forum: https://discourse.pi-hole.net
that will guarantee a faster response.

hi! i'm packaging pi-hole for NixOS, and i'm encountering a strange issue: pi-hole doesn't block any request. if i connect to the FTL daemon and run >stats, i get domains_being_blocked: 0. does anybody have ideas on how to debug this?
Linas Martusevicius
@linmar22
ayo. Im new to this - how do I run the linux-arm build?
Mark Drobnak
@Mcat12
@asymmetric Make sure that it is actually being sent the request by checking the dnsmasq log at /var/log/pihole.log (on normal installs). Then check the FTL log to make sure that it is loading the blocked domains (/var/log/pihole-FTL.log).
@linmar22 No need to worry about the architecture, just follow the install instructions: https://docs.pi-hole.net/main/basic-install/

Hello loves
Having a bit of a fit right now
Attempting to run Pihole on a FreshTomato build - Hardware is a Asus Cellspot Router (Also known as Asus RT-AC68U)
Running Debian Jessie 8.9 in CHROOTED
I will pay 0.5BTC to whomever can help me figure this mess out
Mark Drobnak
@Mcat12
Pi-hole does not support running on routers. Even so, without any details about the issue you are having we cannot help you fix them.
Mike Hawk
@SkeletorIsKing_twitter
@Mcat12 Well, you should support it. I've got Pi-Hole running on the latest Fresh Tomato build, it's taken a bit of tweaking (no pun intended) but I finally got it. The only problem I'm running into is figuring out which eth or vlan to run it off of; the only one that has worked is the br0 and I am having to use the routers IP address as the static

Here's my setup:

Main modem is a Cox Arris TG1682G Router/Modem combo running in bridge mode, the wireless is being served up by a D-link DIR-882 Exo 2600AC MU-MIMO loaded up with a stable version of DD-WRT. Then I have a Asus RT-AC68U 1900 loaded with the latest build of Fresh Tomato - It's also running Debian Jessie v8.9 stable; I'm using this router as a Wireless Ethernet bridge/ repeater.

Mark Drobnak
@Mcat12
We don't have the resources to support running on routers, and most routers do not have the capabilities necessary to run Pi-hole.
Mike Hawk
@SkeletorIsKing_twitter
WHat are you trying to say?
Mark Drobnak
@Mcat12
Exactly what I said. We don't have the resources and most routers would not benefit from it because they don't have the capabilities necessary to run it (powerful enough processor or operating system).
