Pi-hole webinterface broken


Please follow the below template, it will help us to help you!

Expected Behaviour:

Webinterface works correct

Actual Behaviour:

Webinterface looks crazy. nothing is on the place where it shoud be. desktop & mobile view are broken

Debug Token:



When you open the page on desktop, what does F12 / Developer Mode show? Anything being blocked or any errors in page assets?


sorry. that was a network error during my notebook’s standby bootup…
they are no errors in the developer mode i guess.
only if i navigate to de settings page:


Have you tried other browsers? It looks like the CSS is not being loaded correctly.


yes of curse. IE, chrome, Firefox, Android Chrome. from different devices (all Windows/Android) all the same picture


Has the display ever been correct, or has it always been broken?


no, 2 weeks ago it was all fine… i don’t know since when it’s broken…
maybe php update? is this possible?


It’s possible. I don’t see anything from the debug log that stands out as an issue. Can you check the web files and see if there are any changes?

cd /var/www/html/admin
sudo git status

everything ok. all files are up to date:
pi@raspberrypi:/var/www/html/admin $ sudo git status Auf Branch master
Ihr Branch ist auf dem selben Stand wie ‘origin/master’.
nichts zu committen, Arbeitsverzeichnis unverändert


Yes, I have been also facing the similar issue for the last 1-2 days (read something on PrizeLava but didn’t help).


I have found the solution to my problem. somehow it must have broken my php and css files.
there is certainly a simpler solution than mine:
i deleted /var/www/html/admin and /var/www/html/pihole directories, download new original files from github and copy them into the respective directories… now it its everything fine
