[Solved] How to run Pi-Hole and FreshRSS at the same time?

Post by Mitchel99 »

I want to run Pi-Hole and FreshRSS at the same time.

As described in the forum [1], the installed Pi-Hole runs at http://192.168.0.100/pihole (or /admin).
As described in the forum [2], the installed FreshRSS runs at http://192.168.0.100/freshrss

[1] viewtopic.php?p=174#p174
[2] viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5&p=13918#p13918

When I install Pi-Hole and afterwards FreshRSS, I get an error from Pi-Hole when calling http://192.168.0.100/freshrss (that says, that the page doesn't exist).

Is it possible to run both at same time?

Hi,

I was unable to replicate on Odroid C2.

Please ensure you change the IP address to match that of your system.

eg:
http://192.168.0.2/pihole
http://192.168.0.2/freshrss


The IP address of the system is displayed in the banner, after logging in.

I have a similar problem with Baikal.
if i enter the url to finish the setup i get the pihole logo and a link to the admin page of pihole.

was able to loan a pi zero from a friend.
clean install with pihole and baikal works there -> homemade problem.

so now i have to find out how to tell pihole not to block the side.

Hi guys,

Just to verify, are you installing Pi-hole through dietpi-software?

in my case yes.
only difference i can think of is the version on time of install.
Pi-Hole was installed with v6.6(+/-), baikal with 6.14.
cups somewhere in between.

Mordog.

Edit: pi-hole was updated from 3.3 to 4.0

How did you update Pi-hole?

pihole -up on Pi-hole 3.X indeed breaks other web services, as it moves webroot from /var/www to /var/www/html.
The /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf gets overwritten. I think changing the webroot back should be sufficient to make other web services run again.

To avoid these issues, we recommend that all Pi-hole 3 users update by using: dietpi-software reinstall 93
By doing so, a new (v4) setup variable will be placed to not install/update/config the webserver.
(Or @Fourdee was there a reason to dietpi-software uninstall 93 first?)
Afterwards, you can use pihole -up without issues to update to higher versions and use other webservers (via dietpi-software choice) without Pi-hole always forcing a Lighttpd install :D.

Please try:

Code: Select all

sed -i 's|/var/www/html|/var/www|g' /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf
systemctl restart lighttpd
