Web interface showing no stats


#1

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

Expected Behaviour:

Web interface should be showing stats.

Actual Behaviour:

Web interface is not showing stats. It shows zero for everything except the domains on blocklist.

Debug Token:

x7yrsjltry


#2

Did you flush you cache?


#3

I failed to note that this is a new install, so there shouldn’t be a cache. I did try flushing, but FTL quit running overnight and was showing Lost Connection to API just now. I restarted it just now with service pihole-FTL start and tried again. Still showing zero stats. Not sure why FTL quit running overnight. Just rebooted and FTL won’t start on its own. Had to do it manually again.


#4

Can you send the full FTL log?

cat /var/log/pihole-FTL.log | pihole tricorder

#5

Done. Token is dj3ney48o2. Thank you for your help.

[2018-04-07 13:39:03.626] Error on binding on Unix socket /var/run/pihole/FTL.sock: No such file or directory (2)

Does the /var/run/pihole exist and is writable/owned by user pihole?


#7

I also see

[2018-04-07 13:45:00.009] dbquery(INSERT OR REPLACE INTO ftl (id, value) VALUES ( 1, 0 );) - SQL error (8): attempt to write a readonly database

so make sure the permissions are writeable there as well.


#8

Here’s what everything pihole related in /var/run looks like.
drwxr-xr-x 2 pihole pihole 60 Apr 7 13:55 pihole
-rw-r–r-- 1 pihole pihole 4 Apr 7 13:55 pihole-FTL.pid
-rw-r–r-- 1 pihole pihole 4 Apr 7 13:55 pihole-FTL.port

Not sure what permissions I need to change to fix the dbquery line you mentioned in your last reply.


#9

Can you verify your /etc/init.d/pihole-FTL.service is identical to:


#10

Yes, it is exactly the same.


#11

Is the file created when you do service pihole-FTL start?


#12

No, but it was there when I first checked for it to compare it with the code you posted above.


#13

I was referring to this file.

Also, what are the permissions on /etc/pihole/pihole-FTL.db?


#14

I rebooted and now FTL won’t start at all. I get this message: Failed to start pihole-FTL.service: Unit pihole-FTL.service not found.
Permissions on /etc/pihole/pihole-FTL.db are 644. Also, the Pihole related files in /var/run are just gone. No idea what caused that.
I was planning on using pihole on a BeagleBone Black so I could free up my Raspberry Pi 3 for another project, but I’m starting to think it’s more trouble than it’s worth. May just stick with the Pi.


#16

I got FTL working again. Regarding your earlier post, /var/run/FTL.sock was showing it was owned by root:root and permissions were srwxrwxrwx. I changed ownership to pihole:pihole, since that was how it was on my other install. pihole-FTL.db permissions look like this: -rw-r–r-- 1 root root 0 Apr 7 20:56 pihole-FTL.db. I changed ownership on that to pihole:pihole to be like my other install that works correctly.


#17

The last post wasn’t really a solution. After a reboot, FTL still doesn’t start. Typing service pihole-FTL start brings the error Failed to start pihole-FTL.service: Unit pihole-FTL.service not found. I ran a new pihole -d and here is the token 78nj80j9jc


#18

I don’t see the log-queries directive in your dnsmsasq config file. This would prevent stats from being logged, thus showing zero queries on the dashboard.

Can you try a pihole -r > Repair?

Strange the .service file doesn’t exist though since you just mentioned it was the same was what I linked you to on GitHub.


#19

My apologies for taking so long to reply.
I ran a pihole -r and FTL still doesn’t start on boot. Running service pihole-FTL start still results in the service not being found.


#20

What is in

ls -l /var/run/pihole
ls -l /etc/init.d

#21

I was out of town all day yesterday. Checked it today and FTL had stopped running at some point. I ran sudo service pihole-FTL start and it started again, but still not showing stats on the web page. Below are the answers to your questions above. Thank you.
