February `19

Server Update

yay -Syu --noconfirm

After the update you’ll need to click some buttons for FressRSS:

  1. Go to your FreshRSS – Website (
  2. Click on the “check-button” on the left
  3. Go down and select “Keep previous configuration”
  4. and then “Complete installation”

(It may take a while (about 3 minutes – pi2) until the website is reachable again).

Now check “Pacnew: Keep your config files up to date – February `19“. Especially, for Pi-Hole.


We have changed the PwOSS – Image a bit. If you are already running the image, you can also change it:

1. No need. Pi-Hole manages everything.
sudo systemctl disable systemd-resolved.service


2. Hide the version number of your PHP (security).
sudo nano /etc/php/php.ini
Change expose_php = On to expose_php = Off.


3. Change the time of DDClient to every 5 hours. This may be required if your ISP (internet service provider) frequently changes your IP address.
sudo crontab -e
Change 45 04 * * * /usr/sbin/ddclient --force to 45 */5 * * * /usr/sbin/ddclient --force.


4. Check the info about the PwOSS -Image below.


PwOSS – Image:

The image includes all updates/pacnew etc.

You can find the whole changelog here (seafile.pwoss.xyz).

It is important to note, however, that we have changed the Pi-Hole settings.

We “tickt” Use DNSSEC ON. So, if you do not have internet or other problems, just go to your Pi-Hole-settings-dns and “untick” it again do a reboot and turn it on again.

You can check dnssec.vs.uni-due.de. (The thumb must be up).

Quick explanation – Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC):

All answers from DNSSEC protected zones are digitally signed. By checking the digital signature, a DNS resolver is able to check if the information is identical (i.e. unmodified and complete) to the information published by the zone owner and served on an authoritative DNS server.
