FTL Displays as Offline


#1

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

Expected Behaviour:

FTL Should show as running on the WebUI - but it don’t.

Actual Behaviour:

SSH Input: sudo pihole-FTL
SSH Output: Notice: Found no readable FTL config fileFATAL: Opening of FTL log (/var/log/pihole-FTL.log) failed!
Make sure it exists and is writeable by user pi

Debug Token:

[Replace this text with the debug token provided from running pihole -d (or running the debug script through the web interface]
hprrbzy0v1

Note: When I run pihole -D it shows “[✓] pihole-FTL daemon is active” // so maybe it’s nothing.


May or May Not be related… but my dashboard tables no longer load either. Post updating.


#2

Are you able to upload the debug log? If so, do so and post the token and we’ll take a look at your whole setup.


#3

pihole-FTL is not meant to be called directly like this.

Use

  • sudo service pihole-FTL status to check its status
  • sudo service pihole-FTL stop to stop it (usually not needed)
  • sudo service pihole-FTL start to start it (usually not needed)
  • sudo service pihole-FTL restart to restart it (usually not needed)
