Pihole is functional, but cannot access admin web interface

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

Expected Behaviour:

I should be able to go to the admin interface via pi.hole/admin or directly via (the static IP).

Actual Behaviour:

Cannot load the admin interface via either of the methods (ip or pi.hole/admin, lighttpd service does not start and even taking ownership of the /var/log/lighttpd folder and files within does not fix the problem as suggested in other threads: Pi-hole no web interface access and lighttpd.service failed to start

Debug Token:


Run pihole -r and select repair. This may fix the problem.

Yep, this did fix the issue. I tried it before and it didn’t work - but now it has! Thanks.
