Not able to restart lighttpd

#1

Expected Behaviour:

PiHole interface should work if this works

Actual Behaviour:

Job for lighttpd.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
See “systemctl status lighttpd.service” and “journalctl -xe” for details.

Debug Token:

Ah, you’re on Debian Buster, that’s not a supported release as it hasn’t been actually released yet.

I don’t believe you can downgrade Buster to Stretch, or at least do it and have a running system.

Ubuntu 18 / Debian Stretch are both supported. Ubuntu Core is not a platform we have tested on.
