I've tried a number of times on my , but it's always been a pretty crappy experience to be honest.

If you have a , here's how you can host Pi-Hole on there instead.


I run it on Raspberry Pi 3B+ and it works totally OK. What particular problems did you have so you're talking about crappy experience?

@VikingKong tried it maybe 2 years ago on a Pi 3B+ also. Web ui felt slow and clunky, and the Pi kept going down. I’d get maybe a few days before it would crash, overheat maybe, I dunno.

About 6 months so I tried again and the image didn’t even work. I gave up at that point.

@VikingKong could be a bad unit though, again, I don’t know. Didn’t have time to invest in working it out😕

Yes, looks like a bad unit. Besides Pi-Hole I run on the same unit Nextcloud, FreshRSS, Kodi and Unbound for DNS over TLS which Pi-Hole uses as an upstream server, everything works fine.


@VikingKong wow! Didn’t think they could run all that. Just my luck to get a dud unit!

Oh, and I've forgotten, there's Transmission Daemon also 😊

Actually, Nextcloud's WebUI works rather slowly, but I think, it's not too fast by itself, because FreshRSS, Pi-Hole and Transmission Daemon's WebUIs which are run on the same unit are pretty damn fast.
