This isn't a problem, so much as a question. With Pi-Hole 4, I had local DNS running alongside the software. I set it up by running:
echo "addn-hosts=/etc/pihole/lan.list" | sudo tee /etc/dnsmasq.d/02-lan.conf
. . . and then putting the entries in /etc/pihole/lan.list and running sudo pihole restartdns after each change.
In Pi-Hole 5, there's a tool for local DNS within the software itself. (Thank you, this is awesome!) Is there any easy way to migrate the entries from the /etc/pihole/lan.list file into the new system? I can go through line by line, of course, but I just wondered, given that I have about 300 entries in my lan.list.
This is working now. I'll be perfectly honest: I don't know how or why. One of the entries on the list would just not show up, and including it was messing up the whole file. But if I add it through the GUI, it adds to the list nicely. Bizarre, but all set. Thanks for your help!
If you are using comments (#), it won't process file correctly.
That's only thing that bothers me: I've just set my hosts file, nice, tidy, commented, now, just a bunch of hostnames and IP's... it would be nice to have groups here as well.
