Rebooted pi-hole on raspberry pi after updating hosts file and expect it to come back up clean
Upon reboot, receive a Lost Connection to API. Rebooted again to verify, same error.
Debug log won’t upload, but did download the debug log. Don’t want to post it here, but willing to share.
I got the “Lost Connection to API” earlier this week while on Stretch after doing an upgrade/update. Decided to start over and installed Buster and setup pi-hole. Everything was working great and re-configured. Updated the host file on both of my pi-hole (one is a VM) and rebooted. The raspberry pi now received the above error message…again. Not sure if this may be hardware related or not.
