How to update Pi-hole

Published Jan 11 2021

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.
