FTL Offline


FTL ist dauernt offline und ich weiß nicht wie ich es online kriegen kann. Was kann ich da machen?


Please send us the token generated by

pihole -d

or do it through the Web interface:


My token is 8uxkk311tf


You have another DNS service running on port 53 (BIND9?) which is preventing FTL from running on that port.


Wow great that worked thank you very much! I just needed to unintall bind9 with this: sudo apt-get remove bind9


Now I have the problem that its not bloking any ads. I can still see all ads :frowning_face:


Please run another debug log and post the token.




If you look on your admin dashboard top right red box “Domains on Blocklist”, you will likely see a number near zero (or zero). Your debug log shows that your gravity list is empty.

Update gravity from either the web admin GUI > tools > update gravity or from the command line with pihole -g


Why does it says that if I try to update the config?
[✗] Update local cache of available packages
Error: Unable to update package cache. Please try “apt-get update”


What command were you running and do you still have the output of that command? If so, please post it.


I get to fix that but now when I try to make pihole -r it always get stuck on this screen:
