Pi-hole and nginx

Post by ProXy »


atm I am running pi-hole which installs Lighttpd. Now dietpi won‘t let me install nginx using the interface. I am wondering if I should install pi-hole using the interface like I did and install nginx manually or would you install nginx using the interface and install pi-hole manually?

I would like to run pi-hole on nginx, so I would like go get rid of Lighttpd. Installing a new version of pi-hole would be a problem in both cases as Lighttpd is installed with pi-hole. Is anyone running pi-hole and nginx using dietpi?

Thank you!

you could remove PiHole and Lighttpd using dietpi-software uninstall dialog. Once finished change web server preference in dietpi-software to Nginx and try to install PiHole again
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
