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.

@ultraquist thanks for reporting. given that this package deserves more love, perhaps it's time to enable the same log rules as the server version. please let me know.

Hi, Sorry if this is a problem on my end or upstream, but logging doesn't seem to be working anymore, using pihole logging on. Issuing pihole -t to view the log tail gives:

  [i] Press Ctrl-C to exit
tail: cannot open '/var/log/pihole.log' for reading: No such file or directory
tail: no files remaining

It seems there has been some deletions to /etc/dnsmasq.d/01-pihole.conf. Adding these lines seems to fix:


With /var/log/pihole.log existing with pihole:pihole ownership.

I think these lines are necessary, since /usr/bin/pihole just seems to try toggling the commenting on these lines using sed.

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.

deemon commented on 2020-09-01 12:29

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.
