Losing connection to API every few days


I’m having approximately the same problem. The dashboard seems to lose its connection to the API every couple days, and the only way to recover it is to reboot the Pi (Model 3 B+.) I’m almost kinda wondering if I’m running into the Pi’s RAM/performance limits.

Is anyone having this issue on non-Pi, x86, 2+ GB RAM hardware?


Usual "Lost connection to API"

Please generate a debug log, upload it and post the token here.

Unless you have a huge number of blocked domains or queries in 24 hours, you should not be exceeding the limits of a Pi 3B+.



Per the log itself:

[✗] There was an error uploading your debug log.

  • Please try again or contact the Pi-hole team for assistance.
  • A local copy of the debug log can be found at: /var/log/pihole_debug-sanitized.log

I tried logging into tricorder but it wouldn’t let me sign in with my Github either. What should I do?

I have ~670K, but Pi-hole worked just fine before the most recent version update. These problems started after that.



I rebooted the Pi, which solves the problem as usual but also means said problem may not be present in the log. Token is: 33yzq0u0ac.

Any ideas?
