  1. Hi evereyone, After doing some upgrades my Pi-hole Admin Page was not reachable anymore, while blocking still worked. 1. Problem The lighttpd service was not running because of the missing folder /var/log/lighttpd. So lighttpd crashes when trying to access /var/log/lighttpd/error.log and access.log. Reinstalling Pi-hole and lighttpd didnt solve the problem. So I first created the folder myself: sudo mkdir /var/log/lighttpd sudo chown -R www-data: www-data /var/log/lighttpd Then I reinstalled Pi-hole and lighttpd, now lighttpd was running. Unfortunatly now I ran into 403 - Forbidden when accessing the admin page. 2. Problem In lighttpd the fastcgi module has to be activated to work with php. All mentioned solutions for this from the Pi-hole board didn't work for me. After hours of trying and searching I found this workaround: a) Uninstall Pi-hole and lighttpd (maybe not neccessary) sudo pihole uninstall sudo apt remove lighttpd b) Install latest php, dnsmasq and Pi-hole (lighttpd will be installed automatically) sudo apt install dnsmasq sudo apt install php7.2 sudo apt install php7.2-cgi sudo curl -sSL | bash (same method as in armbian-config i think) c) Edit /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf Adding fastcgi to server.modules: server.modules = ( "mod_access", "mod_fastcgi", "mod_accesslog", "mod_auth", "mod_expire", "mod_compress", "mod_redirect", "mod_setenv", "mod_rewrite" ) And putting this at the end of the file: fastcgi.server = ( ".php" => (( "bin-path" => "/usr/bin/php-cgi", "socket" => "/tmp/php.sock" ))) And voila - after reboot the Pi-hole admin-page was accessible again. Hope this can help if someone is running in the same problem. Greetz Alex Edit: On the PiHole Board was mentioned, that there are conflicts with PiHole and dnsmasq. So i suggest not to install it / uninstall it. My System Orange-Pi +2e Armbian Bionic 5.85 Server running Pi-hole, OPI-Monitor, SMB, FTPS
