Unable to access map when using pi-hole

I’m a very new tracking user.

I’ve been using a raspberry Pi 4 for months as a local DNS server, using pihole.

I’ve recently installed piaware, and most things seem to be working - I can see data on my stats page at : https://uk.flightaware.com/adsb/stats/user/whqttt - so I take that as confirmation that the FA side of things is probably set up correctly.

However (and I think this shows it to be some sort of lighttpd/pihole issue) when I try to go to :

http://192.168.1.62:9900/dump1090/gmap.html

I get the default pihole error page “Pi- hole : Your black hole for Internet advertisements
[Did you mean to go to the admin panel?]”

I’ve changed the port from the default to 9900 in /etc/lighttpd/conf-enabled/89-dump1090-fa.conf and restarted everything, but the problem follows whichever port I’ve tried.

Any suggestions on what I could try next?

PiHole + piaware solution:

sudo nano /etc/lighttpd/external.conf

Paste this:

server.modules += (
  "mod_alias"
)

Press CTRL-O and ENTER to save
Press CTRL-X to exit

Reboot.

(Can't get PIAware running)

Superb answer. Everything works.
Thanks.
