How to update Pi-hole

New Course Coming Soon:

Get Really Good at Git

I installed my Raspberry Pi as a network-wide adblocker with Pi-hole.

It works great.

Sometimes it’s necessary to update the Pi-hole software because new releases are updated, and so on.

You will see this notice at the bottom of the Pi-hole admin interface:

You can update it manually by logging in the Raspberry Pi, using VNC or SSH, and then run the

pihole -up


And the version will be updated:

You can setup a script to run pihole -up from time to time automatically, using a cron job.

Run crontab -e and then at the bottom add

0 6 * * * pihole -up

to run it every day at 6am.

Are you intimidated by Git? Can’t figure out merge vs rebase? Are you afraid of screwing up something any time you have to do something in Git? Do you rely on ChatGPT or random people’s answer on StackOverflow to fix your problems? Your coworkers are tired of explaining Git to you all the time? Git is something we all need to use, but few of us really master it. I created this course to improve your Git (and GitHub) knowledge at a radical level. A course that helps you feel less frustrated with Git. Launching May 21, 2024. Join the waiting list!
