RaspAP && PiHole



I want PiHole to cohabitate with RaspAp but can’t figure out how to get DHCP working so that I connect to my AP and get Pi Hole for DNS & DHCP.

Any tip ?



No one? Is there an alternative? I just want pihole and a WiFi access point working


Do you currently have Pi-Hole installed on that device? If so,

Please send us the token generated by

pihole -d

or do it through the Web interface:



Here it is :

Your debug token is: r1tt1kmbzz



my raspap runs on a different RPI which pointing to the pihole


A review of your debug log shows that dnsmasq is running on port 53.

In V4.0, dnsmasq is embedded in pihole-FTL, and dnsmasq no longer runs as a separate process. The debug log will show dnsmasq as either failed or inactive. Process pihole-FTL should be shown running on port 53.


You will need to stop and disable dnsmasq, then restart pihole-FTL.


Finally, got it working.

  1. Install RaspAP
  2. Install Pi-Hole
  3. sudo touch /var/lib/misc/dnsmasq.leases
  4. sudo chown pihole:pihole /var/lib/misc/dnsmasq.leases
  5. reboot
