Domains on blocklist: 142


#1

Pihole has been running unattended for a week or so, I hadn’t logged in at all. Just fired up the browser to see some statistics, and it is only blocking 142 domains. I have a lot of lists configured for blocking. I forced an update to all the lists, and I’m still at 142. I rebooted, still at 142.

What happened to the zillions of domains pihole used to block for me???

Please send us the token generated by

pihole -d

so we can help debug the issue.

Thank you!

Can you share the output of pihole -g from the command line? You definitely have a lot of lists and I can see your blacklist is populated. The output from the command will help diagnose the issue further. It’s not something we usually account for in the debug log.


#5

I’m guessing the “no space left on device” has something to do with the problem, hahahaha. Is a 2GB sdcard not enough for pihole plus a lot of lists?

Thanks.

Don’t forget there is also an operating system. Regarding used and free space take a look at the command
df -h.

To free some space run sudo apt-get clean.

Not much help. I guess I need a bigger sdcard.

To confirm, the out-of-space problem is why the existing lists are not being used? Can I pare down the lists, free up space, and get pihole working again?


#8

I had a spare 32gb sdcard.

I ftp’d /etc/pihole/* to another machine.

I installed raspian and pi-hole on the 32gb sdcard, got it running, and put /etc/pihole/* back

(then I found teleporter, oh well)

I am now blocking 2,645,753 domains again.


#9

Yeah, when you run out of space, all sorts of weird things start happening.
