The issue I am facing:
Been trying to change the server port for Pi-hole from default 80 as will be deploying Open Media Vault on the same device. Was able to change "server-port" from 80 to user-defined one in lighttpd.conf file but as many have said that this isn't a permanent solution as Pi-hole would revert to 80 upon next update.
Solution was said to be making similar entry in external.conf BUT that is an empty file and when I do make a such an entry into it and then try to restart lighttpd service I get the error:-
"Job for lighttpd.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status lighttpd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details."
Been referring to this link for it; https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/52090/how-do-i-change-pi-holes-url-path
Details about my system:
Raspberry Pi 4 4GB variant, connected to an ONT via Ethernet cable and Router's DHCP configuration has Pi's Ethernet interface IP as DNS
What I have changed since installing Pi-hole:
Nothing, except the server port in lighttpd.conf file
