This Year’s Febuary I upgraded pihole to version v3.3 ant FTL to v3.0 and came across the issue described later in pihole’s blog: https://pi-hole.net/2018/02/14/pi-hole-v3-3-released-its-extra-special/
I have pihole installed on Debian 8 Jessie (yes, Debian, it’s on VPS not on Raspberry Pi). Because the version of dnsmasq provided is 2.72 and doesn’t support log-queries=extra option I had to downgrade to version 3.2.1 and FTL 2.13.
Fast forward couple of months and I’m visiting pihole’s blog and github’s issues again. I see no mention about this issue being resolved, however I see the announcement of FTLDNS being developed: https://pi-hole.net/2018/02/22/coming-soon-ftldns-pi-holes-own-dns-dhcp-server/
My questions are:
- Can I safely upgrade my pi on debian 8? Has the issue with dnsmasq been resolved?
- If not, is the FTLDNS an option and how can I enable it? Do I have to git checkout to FTLDNS branch (https://github.com/pi-hole/FTL/tree/FTLDNS) and if so, which combination of versions of pihole, web and FTL should I choose?
