DNS server not running


Pihole ist disabled. If i try to enable it says "Active" until i refresh the page or change page - then it again states that DNS is not running. On repair it states, that pihole is not listening but there is no reason listed for this. Originally the problem was a blocked port with FTL, but i resolved that and FTL is running now.

I tried everything i found online - no results so far.

Current Pi-hole version is v5.3.1.
Current AdminLTE version is v5.5.
Current FTL version is v5.8.1.

PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)"
NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux"
VERSION="10 (buster)"

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ls -lhs /usr/bin/pihole-FTL
11M -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 11M May 13 20:00 /usr/bin/pihole-FTL
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo dpkg --print-architecture
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ uname -m

Debug Token:


From your debug log, unbound is sitting on port 53, and this is preventing pihole-FTL from binding to that port.

*** [ DIAGNOSING ]: Ports in use
[53] is in use by unbound (https://docs.pi-hole.net/main/prerequisites/#ports)

pihole-FTL is on an unexpected port:

*:5353 pihole-FTL (IPv4)

Are you trying to run unbound as an upstream DNS server for Pi-hole?

Thank you!
I got rid of unbound, now its working again!
