Thanks to the team for this very promising project.
I just installed it on a Raspberry Pi (RPi-B) model to test it out. On this RPi, I’m also running pi-hole, which is used as DNS server over the lan. I’ve set up a fix (static) IP address to RPi, which is used by pi-hole.
I’ve followed all the documentation while installing YaCy, but I don’t know how to access it, or even check if it is working or not. Any hint/clue?
On Raspberry Pi (RPi), I’m using default Raspbian OS.
Yes, I did start YaCy from command line (using startYACY.sh from its directory, as I had carefully followed the instructions from the website).
The issue is that pihole uses the IP address of RPi as the DNS server. So when I go to the IP address of the machine (RPi), where YaCy and pihole both are installed, I get pihole console admin, and I see no possibility to see the progress (indexing) of YaCy by using the same IP address.
Using pi-hole for YaCy is an excellent idea! I used pi-hole on a RPi and found that pi-hole is an excellent piece of software!
So using pi-hole for YaCy is not a question of YaCy set-up, it’s only a question on how to set up the underlying operation system which is running YaCy. You just need to configure the DNS system to use the pi-hole server.
