FTL and DNS services fail to start


Please follow the below template, it will help us to help you!

Expected Behaviour:

The services for DNS and FTL should start and be stable

Actual Behaviour:

DNS and FTL after doing a pihole -up and restarting the pi. those services will not come back up and I can’t get out to the internet

Debug Token:

[Moderator removed your debug log and made it private]


These steps will temporarily change the Pi name server to a commercial DNS so you can run an update.

sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf

Change to, save and exit

pihole -up


That worked, I got everything updated to version 4.0. Is this something that I should leave or change?


If it hasn’t already changed back to, then change it back.

Is your Pi-Hole working properly now? Try uploading a debug log and post the token and we’ll check it.


It is working correctly now without any issues, thank you for your help!
