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.

hi Prakkie, i think you have posted in wrong package. you talk about UI but standalone version has CLI only. anyway, can you please reset your browser cache and continue this discussion in server package?

Hi, I am using latest version of this package and using nginx for reverse proxy. All working fine but unable to use UI. I cant do any changes through UI. I tried temporary disabling, changing theme, DNS setting etc.. All options give instant response but when clicked on any other option, it resets. It was working fine till upgrade. Please let me know if I am missing something. Thanks.

hi deemon, yes you can delete those files. left .list files in use are: adlists custom and local.

pacdiff says that there is new /etc/dnsmasq.d/01-pihole.conf.pacnew with gravity.list and black.list removed (compared to current/previous config). Are they no longer needed? can I delete then those .list files also? I assume yes, as I see there new gravity.db side-by-side with the (old?) gravity.list which I assume is the replacement, but just to be sure, asking this.

After this update:

upgraded nettle (3.5.1-2 -> 3.6-1)

pihole-FTL.service doesn't start anymore:

$ sudo systemctl status pihole-FTL.service ● pihole-FTL.service - Pi-hole FTLDNS engine Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/pihole-FTL.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sat 2020-05-09 13:25:44 CEST; 95ms ago Process: 3736 ExecStartPre=/bin/chown -R pihole:pihole /etc/pihole (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Process: 3737 ExecStartPre=/bin/chown pihole:http /etc/pihole/regex.list (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE) Process: 3739 ExecStartPre=/bin/chown root:root /etc/pihole/logrotate (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE) Process: 3741 ExecStart=/usr/bin/pihole-FTL no-daemon (code=exited, status=127) Main PID: 3741 (code=exited, status=127)

Downgrade of nettle solved this problem

1) pi-hole-gravity.timer is present in all versions and is statically enabled. All is in auto pilot mode. :-)
2) you can add as many DNS server you want. queries will be forwarded over all of them and if you query an URL that is in your intranet it will be resolved by your internal DNS. I have a similar config for my notebook.
