Adding Speed Test and a Dark Theme to Pi-Hole Ad Blocker

Just keeping these notes here for anyone else that might find them useful.

First, install Pi-Hole as per regular.

Then, You’ll want to get the Dark Theme going with pi-hole.

  1. Open a terminal (or SSH if you’re remoting in) ( Ctrl + Alt + T )
  2. Type: cd /var/www/html/
  3. Type: sudo wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lkd70/PiHole-Dark/master/install.sh
  4. Type: sudo chmod +x install.sh
  5. Type: sudo ./install.sh
  6. Follow the onscreen instructions!

Then, verify it is working (you might have to clear cache) and that you see the dark theme.

Now you can install the Speed Test Module for Pi-Hole.

sudo apt install python-pip

sudo pip install speedtest-cli

sudo apt install sqlite3

#Configure correct timezone for graph *Need for graph to work correctly

sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

#select your timezone

Find php version 

if it is 5.x

if it is 7.x

Restart Pi

You can try run it using

If Everything is ok, proceed to next step

Get the new set of admin Code from github ( New method  or try old one here)

 

Then do this to test your installation, and then reload the Pi-Hole interface.

You should be good to go! Let me know in the comments if you’re not.

Just returned from Microsoft Tech Days 2008 in Ottawa

And I got a buttload of free stuff from Tech Days 2008. Including, but not limited to – a Microsoft sticker, a cool toque, a spoon that also functions as a pen, a technet 6 month subscription, tech ed dvd sets, vs pro 2008, expression web, and a bunch of demo software. All in all it was a great day, but, I didn’t like the fact that it started at like 7:30 am, way too early for geeky people.

Here’s a picture of the free stuff
