I'm sure I just haven't done something right - but I'm unable to even start the exporter.

I have installed Golang 1.12, and then removed and installed 1.11. So currently on 1.11 but the issue occurs on both.

Downloaded the pihole_exporter-linux-amd64 file as I am using Ubuntu Server however when I do ./pihole_exporter-linux-amd64 I get the error message "command not found" - I'm sure i've missed something very basic, I'm not very cluey with this kind of stuff.

I am also unable to run the GO111MODULE=on go mod vendor as I get a 'cannot find main module' error so maybe it's a golang issue? All help is appreciated.

Then you should be able to call:
