ArchLinux Pi-hole is not officially supported by Pi-hole project. In case of bugs and malfunctions please DO NOT file a report upstream.

First of all check if the wiki ( can help then ask here for assistance and tips.
When it will be excluded that the problem does not depend on ArchLinux we will file a bug upstream.

Can you guys add more lists/links to adlists.list? It doesn't get updated. It sticks to

after pihole -g



I've forgotten to use -r

pihole -g -r

dnsmasq.include should include addn-hosts=/etc/pihole/custom.list

I have problems with the permissions of the "/dev/shm/FTL-*" files. After reboot they are set to "root:root" and pihole works just for a short time and then stops resolving DNS queries with "Lost connection to API" on the web-UI. I have to manually chown the files to "pihole:pihole" and restart the service for the server to work reliably. Also all query data is lost every time I reboot the system or restart the pihole-FTL.service. Does anyone has a solution?

EDIT: Still have that problem. Can someone please tell me the standard permissions for /dev/shm/FTL-* ? I do not know if they have to be root:root. All problems are gone when I chown them to pihole:pihole and restart pihole-FTL.service.

Edit2: Can someone please tell me the output of "ls -l /dev/shm/FTL-*"?

Anyone has any idea why pi-hole is incredibly slow? takes like 15seconds to finish, when without pi-hole it takes like 1-2 sec?

EDIT: Pi-Hole f***ing sucks to me. I found alternative called grimd which works kinda same as Pi-Hole, without fancy charts, with nice config file and has super great performance while supporting DOH. I even made AUR package... Finally no more php/sqlite/web server nightmares and most important - no more issues with performance...

Should pi-hole be moved under /usr/share/webapps instead of /srv/http/?

@kikislater you are welcome!

Oh well, understand ! I build it before upgrade

$ sudo pihole-FTL no-daemon
pihole-FTL: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Rebuilt it and now ok, thank you for your support max and the pihole-FTL command
