PAM config or account expired

Pi-hole's website wasn't allowing me to change any of the settings. In the logging these errors occured:

http : Account expired or PAM config lacks an "account" section for sudo, contact your system administrator ;

Changed the file /etc/pam.d/sudo by adding this line :

account    required

That had no effect. So I de-expired the httpuser with this command:

$ sudo chage --expiredate -1 http

That resolved the issue. Perhaps someone might want to add this to the article? Mausy5043 (talk) 07:46, 4 October 2019 (UTC)


Yes some lines about timers are missing but at least they are all statically enabled, no much to do.
but where did you find (in standalone pkg) an invalid timer? and more, the only one is identical to server's one... Max.bra (talk) 08:11, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

Apologies for that timer stuff, it doesn't belong here. I added some details to the accuracy template, please see there. Feel free to remove it if you are satisfied with the content. Sorry for the noise. Tarqi (talk) 20:46, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
What do you think now? More compliant in completeness and accuracy? Max.bra (talk) 11:04, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

How pi-hole-standalone is different from regular pi-hole?

Hi guys. Can someone explain to me how pi-hole-standaloneAUR is different from pi-hole-serverAUR? I mean - I am using regular pi-hole-serverAUR version and I have no issues, but I am trying to understand how pi-hole-standaloneAUR is different and what advantages/disadvantages it offers compared to regular version? -- Erkexzcx (talk) 16:02, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

dnsmasq and systemd-resolve

It seems systemd-resolve can prevent pihole-FTL.service to start as seen here.
Is stopping/disabling systemd-resolve.service the correct way to correct this and should we add this in the troubleshooting section ? Rsidhoum (talk) 19:43, 19 March 2019 (UTC)
