Unbound should run when started.
Unbound is failing to start with this message:
/etc/unbound/unbound.conf:1: error: stray '''
I haven’t done this yet but I can if needed.
I followed the steps at https://docs.pi-hole.net/guides/unbound/ to add unbound to my already running pihole server (on a Ras Pi running Raspbian stretch) and at first, I thought it was working. I checked the pihole logs today and realized all DNS requests were being handled by 184.108.40.206 (google).
I log into the PI via SSH as ‘pi’.
When I do: sudo service unbound restart’ and then ‘sudo journalctl -u unbound.service’, I see:
Apr 14 19:12:40 thirdpi systemd: Started Unbound DNS server. Apr 14 19:12:40 thirdpi unbound: /etc/unbound/unbound.conf:1: error: stray ''' Apr 14 19:12:40 thirdpi unbound: read /etc/unbound/unbound.conf failed: 1 errors in configuration file Apr 14 19:12:40 thirdpi unbound:  unbound[17518:0] fatal error: Could not read config file: /etc/unbound.conf
Here is my /etc/unbound/unbound.conf file (not showing the comments):
My /etc/unbound/unbound.conf.d/pi-hole.conf file is exactly like the one in the guide.
I searched here and all over the web and can’t find this specific "stray ‘’’ " error anywhere else.
Does anyone have any ideas for me?
