Pi-hole
Network-wide ad blocking via your own Linux hardware

Pi-hole Web interface

Pi-hole®'s Web interface (based off of AdminLTE) provides a central location to manage your Pi-hole and review the statistics generated by FTLDNS.

  • Easy-to-interpret: simple graphs and beautiful colors make Pi-hole's stats easy to understand
  • Responsive: looks great on desktop, tablets, and mobile devices
  • Useful: control and configure your Pi-hole with our settings
  • Insightful: use the query log, audit log, or long-term stats to gain insight into your networks activity


Installation

The Web interface is enabled by default when you install Pi-hole.

Post-installation: access the Web interface and gain insight into your network's activity

There are several ways to access the dashboard:

  1. http://<IP_ADDPRESS_OF_YOUR_PI_HOLE>/admin/
  2. http:/pi.hole/admin/ (when using Pi-hole as your DNS server)
  3. http://pi.hole/ (when using Pi-hole as your DNS server)

Once logged in (forgot your password?), you can view your network stats to see things like:

  • the domains being queried on your network
  • the time the queries were initiated
  • the amount of domains that were blocked
  • the upstream server queries were sent to
  • the type of queries (A, AAAA, CNAME, SRV, TXT, etc.)

Pi-hole is free, but powered by your support

There are many reoccurring costs involved with maintaining free, open source, and privacy respecting software; expenses which our volunteer developers pitch in to cover out-of-pocket. This is just one example of how strongly we feel about our software, as well as the importance of keeping it maintained.

Make no mistake: your support is absolutely vital to help keep us innovating!

Donations

Sending a donation using our links below is extremely helpful in offsetting a portion of our monthly expenses:

Alternative support

If you'd rather not donate (which is okay!), there are other ways you can help support us:

Contributing via GitHub

We welcome everyone to contribute to issue reports, suggest new features, and create pull requests.

If you have something to add - anything from a typo through to a whole new feature, we're happy to check it out! Just make sure to fill out our template when submitting your request; the questions that it asks will help the volunteers quickly understand what you're aiming to achieve.

Presentations about Pi-hole

Word-of-mouth continues to help our project grow immensely, and so we are helping make this easier for people.

If you are going to be presenting Pi-hole at a conference, meetup or even a school project, get in touch with us so we can hook you up with free swag to hand out to your audience!


Getting in touch with us

While we are primarily reachable on our Discourse User Forum, we can also be found on a variety of social media outlets. Please be sure to check the FAQ's before starting a new discussion, as we do not have the spare time to reply to every request for assistance.

API

Full usage available here. Can be accessed at /admin/api.php. With either no parameters or /admin/api.php?summary it returns the following JSON:

{
   "domains_being_blocked":243038,
   "dns_queries_today":2385,
   "ads_blocked_today":414,
   "ads_percentage_today":17.35849,
   "unique_domains":429,
   "queries_forwarded":1537,
   "queries_cached":434,
   "clients_ever_seen":5,
   "unique_clients":5,
   "status":"enabled"
}

There are many more parameters, such as:

  • type & version
  • summaryRaw
  • summary
  • overTimeData10mins
  • topItems
  • getQuerySources
  • getForwardDestinations
  • getQueryTypes
  • getAllQueries
  • enable
  • disable
  • recentBlocked

Together with a token it is also possible to enable and disable (also with a set timeout) blocking via the API.

The API returns more information (in a slightly different format if FTL is running) - it supports a fall-back to the "old" PHP API if FTL is not running. Test the type and/or version of the API by using the parameter type and version.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
