Is it actually working for anyone who has performed a fresh install?

http://192.168.0.100/html/admin does not work neither (404), and as mentioned, htop does not show pihole running. Any way to use the old installer/setup?

(But typing pihole at the command promt at least show

root@DietPi:~# pihole
::: Control all PiHole specific functions!
:::
::: Usage: pihole [options]
::: Add -h after -w (whitelist), -b (blacklist), or -c (chronometer) for more information on usage
:::
::: Options:

..so something is installed, somewhere. :-)

However:

root@DietPi:~# pihole -d
/usr/local/bin/pihole: line 41: /opt/pihole/piholeDebug.sh: No such file or directory

I just did a fresh install last night and it's working for me.

Do you see /usr/sbin/dnsmasq running in htop?

Why it wants to upgrade if it is already installed the latest version? There is the bug.

I've tried it but still not working >_> and the installation from launcher warns me that the webgui is outdated

This messed up my entire PiHole installation and I basically had to reinstall DietPi from scratch....

When using DietPi to install PiHole, DietPi creates a symlink after the official PiHole installer exit's. This is to allow a more "reasonably named link" method of accessing the web interface:

Code: Select all

ln -sf /var/www/html/admin /var/www/pihole
Can we have the old installer back?
No.

We had a very good installation for PiHole for a long time on DietPi. Although our version was 2-4 weeks behind the official, it was stable. However, after time, users wanted the latest version instead of one that was tested for stability, worked with any webserver stack and was optimized for minimal installation footprint.

Gradually, over time, PiHole would break if the official installer wasn't used to install it. It even uses Git to check the version (which means more disk resource usage, ours didn't even install Git). So we had to spend alot of time trying to "fix" and patch our more optimized forked installation each PiHole update.

PiHole would also tell DietPi users the DietPi version is "out of date" and even take credit for the DietPi optimized version:
https://www.reddit.com/r/pihole/comment ... n/czimqna/
https://www.reddit.com/r/raspberry_pi/c ... g/czdyj7k/
https://www.reddit.com/r/pine64/comment ... e/d5rrgfl/
https://www.reddit.com/r/pihole/comment ... d/d09vsh0/

So now, we use the official PiHole installer. All bugs should be reported to PiHole directly.
