ArchLinux Pi-hole is not officially supported by Pi-hole project. In case of bugs and malfunctions please DO NOT file a report upstream. First of all check if the wiki ( can help then ask here for assistance and tips. When it will be excluded that the problem does not depend on ArchLinux we will file a bug upstream.

"Cosmetic" point: During install, there's a note saying:
==> Please read the instructions on the project page:

That link is no longer pointing to config documentation.
Should probably be changed to (referenced by /etc/pihole/pihole-FTL.conf).

@max.bra -

% cat /run/log/pihole-ftl/pihole-FTL.log 
[2018-09-09 03:58:28.491] FTL user: root
[2018-09-09 03:58:28.491] WARNING: Starting pihole-FTL as user root is not recommended

Should this run as the pihole user?

hi jcsims, from PHP parse_ini_file docs:

Version Description
7.0.0   Hash marks (#) are no longer recognized as comments.

but replacing # with // FTL will no longer works.

as you tested, replacing only () is good for now. Thanks for reporting.

Looks like the new commented-out /etc/pihole/pihole-FTL.conf is causing issues in the web UI when loading the Settings page:

There was a problem applying your settings.
Debugging information:
PHP error (2): syntax error, unexpected '(' in /etc/pihole/pihole-FTL.conf on line 33 in /srv/http/pihole/admin/settings.php:15

Complaining about the parentheses. No issue after removing the parentheses from the file.

@max.bra fail on checksum of conf - last update didn't update checksums.

Failing on temporary files for me. I don't have a 'dnsmasq' user so the pi-hole.conf is throwing an error. Changing it to 'nobody' works for me.
