Firstly, I'm pretty aware of technology and how it works but I am no network engineer and very new to Linux/Raspberry Pi.
I just installed Raspbian then Pi-Hole and got the ad blocker working fine. The Raspberry Pi did a pretty big update after the fresh install and asked to reboot; I said no.
My router does not allow me to specify a DNS address, which I wanted to put my Pi's address in, instead of putting in the DNS into every device. Also, WiFi...
Anyway, I wanted to use the DHCP server in PiHole. Disabled DHCP on router, turned on DHCP server on Pi-Hole and thought I'd to a re-start because of the update the day before.
Note, ad-blocker was running fine for 1 day (yesterday).
Today, after a re-boot, The FTL is offline and the DNS service is not running.
No matter how much I try to turn everything back to how it was (DHCP server ON on router, OFF on PiHole), I just can't seem to get the DNS service running...?
