Since switching to pihole user for pihole-FTL - long term data is not retained on my machine.

sir_randomuser said: For some reason account http has expired, which was the root cause. Seems to be due to a recent systemd change:
Checking /etc/shadow, the user http had a trailing 1:

$ sudo cat /etc/shadow | grep http

Removing the expiration date has resolved it:

$ sudo chage --expiredate -1 http

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.

@max.bra yes, indeed. (I should have checked that)

Lighttpd will listen to ipv4 only without this setting which can lead to problems.

max.bra commented on 2019-09-08 09:47

hi danieltetraquark, we don't have any perl script in our lighttpd package.

Do you mean?

## Use IPv6?
server.use-ipv6 = "enable"

Anyway, this package installs an example lighttpd.conf and will never overwrite your official config. You can modify yours and it will be forever.

edit: markdown

danieltetraquark commented on 2019-09-05 16:50

Could you add the following to the lighttpd config to enable listening to ipv4 and ipv6? Like in the upstream/debian lighttpd config

# default listening port for IPv6 falls back to the IPv4 port
include_shell "/usr/share/lighttpd/ " + server.port

Thank you @max.bra. I followed your instructions and it worked. I was just relying on the AUR package for updates and assumed that when you wrote the patch to fix the issue, the package was also recreated with the patch. Maybe it was but it didn't work to re-install it via yaourt. Your method of compiling it with makepkg did. Thanks!

hi hakayova, i don't know what you mean with "I did not compile it as @max.bra recommended" but my recommendations are inside the PKGBUILD. the only way to make FTL works with nettle 3.5.x is to patch it. dot. download a snapshot (link in package AUR page), unzip and do a simple makepkg. after that i'm sure that everything will work. @all please do not rely on AUR helpers only, create your packages by hand too.

I cannot get pihole-FTL start with nettle 3.5.1-1. It runs as expected with the previous version (3.4.1-1). I did not compile it as @max.bra recommended but re-installed pi-hole-ftl from AUR package, thinking that the package may have been patched/updated, but it did not solve the problem and I had to re-downgrade the nettle to make it work again.

max.bra commented on 2019-07-11 06:34

hi katsuki, please do a full system update and recompile from snapshot pi-hole-ftl
