Conditional forwarding problem V5.2


Can not use conditional forwarding. After I hit save, filled info will be lost

How can I switched it on thru conf file?

Please post the token generated by

pihole -d

or do it through the Web interface:

Tools > Generate Debug Log

What information are you entering in the GUI for the conditional forwarding?

You need the local network in CIDR format - in your case this would be

The iP address of your router is

If you have a local domain name on your network (i.e. LAN, mynetwork, etc.), enter that.

This information is stored in file /etc/pihole/setupVars.conf. Your entries would look like this:


That exact information I'm entering. Still it is going to rewrite conf file and add CONDITIONAL_FORWARDING=false and all nothing wont stick to conf file thru WEB interface

Now I entered that directly to conf file and web interface shows it correctly

it should be 1.0 or 1.1?

That should be 1.1. I corrected my reply.

yes, now I insterted that to conf and thru web interface it shows correct. But it wont change it I want to disable or change it.

This problem occurs because command curl -sSL | bash does not install pi-hole to Debian 10 correctly.
