Problems with pihole docker image > 2022.02.01

Hi, I´m following up on this post here (sorry, was away for awhile)

It´s still not working and I´m not sure what to do ....

Running on a raspberry pi 3B

uname -a
Linux home-core 5.10.103-v7l+ #1529 SMP Tue Mar 8 12:24:00 GMT 2022 armv7l GNU/Linux

my docker-compose (again)

version: "3"

And here I am :frowning: .....

really no one ?

That doesn't match with:

Double check what image is actually being used.

Ups, error during reconstruction of error, sorry...

switched back to working image before i copied the "don´t working docker-compose" :frowning:

Just imagine, that

image: pihole/pihole:2022.02.1


image: pihole/pihole:latest

..... Sorry for the mistake


According to container logs, it seems lighttpd started. Could you check if your server is indeed listening on port 80/TCP (netstat -laputen | grep ':80') for starter ?
If so, what does a local curl request tells you (curl -D - ?

Also maybe have a look in lighttpd error log : docker exec -it <containerId> cat /var/log/lighttpd/error.log.

Subsidiary question : How are you trying to access WebUI ? Directy or through an HTTP proxy ? On IP address or specific hostname ?
You can also hit F12 in your browser to open developper console and check the networking tab.

Edit : I see you're using envvar "ServerIP: ${ServerIP}". According to documentation, this address determines lighttpd binding address; Yours is apparently "". You might want to ensure your server is reachable on this interface, or change it to Also perhaps have a look on your firewall rules.
