I had pihole up and running on a DO Droplet for the last year. Everything ran fine and as expected. About a month ago it stopped working, the web interface would lock up, and nothing was being shown in the query log. I tried everything I could find online, but nothing seemed to work.
Tonight I destroyed that DO Droplet and spun up another one for a fresh Pi-hole installation. Dashboard ran fine, everything looked good. I added the block lists from here: https://v.firebog.net/hosts/lists.php?type=all
But when I went to test, nothing was being blocked. I went to the Dashboard (which was running quick and not locking up now), and nothing is in the query list. Thinking it was something screwy with the interface, I tried pihole -t, but still nothing.
Any ideas what might be the issue?
My debug token is: h8j3p21zu4
ps: Just checked the query log and pihole -t one last time and there is one entry in there from about 15min ago. But nothing else.
pss (5min later): There is some activity in the query log and it is from me (recognize my ISP within the Client column), but it’s only a handful of entries within a few seconds. I’ve been to many more sites since then and no activity is showing up.
