Installing pivpn breaks pi-hole


#1

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

Expected Behaviour:

Installing PiVPN and making relevant setting from the following link worked for vpn the last time I installed it:
https://marcstan.net/blog/2017/06/25/PiVPN-and-Pi-hole/

Actual Behaviour:

PiVPN install broke down pihole and changed interface value in 01-pihole.conf file.
ifconfig didn’t show tun0 as one of the adapters.
pihole -a -i all - this command almost never works in attempt to trying to get tun0 to work
correcting the interface=xxxx value to ethernet adapter fixed it. however i also uninstalled pivpn

Debug Token:

4rt4bzx5qc

pivpn config file shows DNS servers which I don’t recognize. they’re now in dnsmasq.conf file also. as shown below. is something wrong with these values?

Hello,
Thank you for the link. This worked.
One thing I couldn’t understand was, after I posted the log, when I checked back with ifconfig, the tun0 started showing, even though I didn’t change anything. Wondering if Pihole admins fixed something with the help of the log.
but anyways, this works and thanks for the help again.
