Adguard Home does not work if you only enter the ip without the port number
What you do you mean by this? Which port you need to specify? Usually this should not be needed to configure DNS on your clients/router

In this screen during the set up, i had to enter different port numbers than the ones written. It said that those ports were taken. So i guess that is why i had to enter ip addresses with port numbers. I uninstalled pihole before installing adguard home, so i have no idea why these ports were taken. I am not really a network specialist to be honest.

listen interfaces can be set to all interfaces. No need to change anything there. Attached a screen shot from my test system.

Next to that port 53 on DNS server is fine, this is the standard port and know by all Router. So entering the DNS Server IP on your router is sufficient. No need to enter a port in addition on your router.

In this screen, Adguard Home told me that those ports were taken and i have to change them with a red font text. I couldn't click next without changing the ports. And when i change the port numbers, ip addresses have an extension with the new port number. Just entering the ip address did not work, i tried it.

Can you do a screen print from these red messages? Do you have another web server and DNS server running already? Otherwise ports shouldn't be blocked

Thanks for the time you are taking for this. I will try to install it again tonight. I will take the screenshot and put it here. When i first installed it, i made sure that pihole was uninstalled before. I thought that they might clash. And i don't have any web server or anything. Just one wireless modem/router. DHCP is provided by the modem.

yes pihole will bring a webserver as well. so you need to ensure non of them is installed. better to start with an empty installation. ;)

aha, that could be the problem. I only uninstalled pihole. I didn't know about the webserver. Maybe the webserver was still running then. Let me try again, this time i will try to uninstall the webserver as well.

Dude, thanks for the help man. It worked :) I will probably make a clean reinstall of dietpi sometime in the future to clean up the residual files, but Adguard Home is currently working and blocking. It also starts automatically after a reboot.
