The issue I am facing:
When I access my pi-hole admin page Red dot and show FTL Offline although every thing seems to be working as intended


Details about my system:

Running on an old android device, using linux-deploy to run Debian Buster and then installing pi-hole on Debian. Init is set as sysv

As far as I can tell there is no port conflict, the command sudo ss -tulpn | grep LISTEN returns:

tcp     LISTEN   0        128      *       users:(("lighttpd",pid=25637,fd=4))

What I have changed since installing Pi-hole:
Nothing besides this fix to make the admin-page work as it wasn't out of the box

sudo usermod -a -G aid_net_bt_admin,aid_net_bt,aid_inet,aid_net_raw,aid_net_admin root

sudo usermod -a -G aid_net_bt_admin,aid_net_bt,aid_inet,aid_net_raw,aid_net_admin pihole

sudo usermod -a -G aid_net_bt_admin,aid_net_bt,aid_inet,aid_net_raw,aid_net_admin www-data

Relevant and similar threads
FTL offline, Load is red in a Linux Deploy container on Android

SOLVED: Admin page shows FTL offline (and not connection to API), but FTL is running

These two are the most relevant that I've found but there are several others with the same or similar issue like this one:
Dashboard/FTL offline although no errors?

What do I expect from this thread?
Honestly I've already spend a couple days and many hours trying to figure this one, read many threads around the web.

So if I can't find and if no one knows a solution, I wonder does this issue really matter?

Everything else looks like it is working as intended so will this have any impact on my daily use of pi-hole or is this just a visual frontend bug/incompatibility of the exotic setup that I am using?
