This is a brand new pi-hole install on a raspberry pi. I used the install script.
Script seems to have worked. Quickly scrolling text, but I did see some "red".
After install, I tried to load the admin page, both locally and from another on same network. Both browsers return "403 - Forbidden"
This is the output from: curl -I http://localhost/admin/
HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently

Let me know if you need me to try anything.
Can you also try
curl -I http://localhost/admin
without trailing /
What's your operating system? Fedora?
My apologies, my earlier error was without the trailing / (I included with it here by mistake)
If I include a trailing "/", then I get:
HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden

The OS is Raspbian 8 (jessie)
First restart your Pi and check if you can access the website with a browser.
Then please read the notes about Jessie in this blog post
The reboot fixed the "admin page not accessible" problem. -- thanks!
And thanks for the heads-up about whitelisting issue with Jessie.
However, I see I have a new problem ... "FTL offline" and no stats are showing.
But let me look into this. I see a help page here that might help:
Thanks again all -- keep up great work!
This was also the solution in another thread. Same problem, same solution.
Sorry, but I can't seem to fix this.
Maybe I'm not seeing the connection to the solved thread.
In this case, I cannot get dnsmasq to start. DNS service is not running. And so FTL is not up either.
I tried a new debug token. But got an error trying to upload the debug log. (w/o DNS)
Here is the local, sanitized debug log:
I found and commented out log-queries=extra
Then restarted. Okay, DNS (dnsmasq) back up and running.
Now: Status: Active. FTL offline
No stats show -- just 'spinning arrows' (but don't timeout).
New debug token: ua2jnhr4bq
Leave it uncommented but remove
Ok. I uncommented, but removed the "=extra"
Problem persists. Active status, but FTL offline.
Can you send us your entire
cat /var/log/pihole-FTL.log | pihole tricorder
Interesting... I typed the full command and I get:
cat: /var/log/pihole-FTL.log: No such file or directory
There is no /var/log/pihole-FTL.log
There is a pihole.log and pihole.log.1
It looks like your still on
dnsmasq v2.72 and Pi-hole v3.3 so it doesn't seem you followed either of these solutions (from the link @mibere posted):
Okay - I picked option 2: upgrade dnsmasq to 2.76. Done.
New debug code: 2a51v96m7c
After a reboot, I'm still stuck on "FTL offline" on Admin page.
Above all, thank you for your patience with me, and continued help.
You still have some issue with the install:
Mar 23 01:51:04 dnsmasq: failed to load names from /etc/pihole/gravity.list: No such file or directory
[✗] pihole-FTL daemon is unknown
