Resetting the Pi-hole Web UI Password The Hard(er) Way
I’ve setup pi-hole recently, twice. The first time was on a first gen Raspberry Pi that stopped booting. I think the SD card got corrupt somehow. The second time was on a new Raspberry Pi 3 B+ that I just bought. If you haven’t setup a pi-hole before, at the end of the setup it prints out the password for the web UI. I noticed during the first install that it was just 8 characters and a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters. I thought maybe it was just RNG luck that I didn’t get any numbers, but the same thing happened during the second install! But then again, the risk is pretty low as it’s only reachable inside my network and the insider threat level (my wife and young kids) just isn’t that high.
